Reviews forArtichoke Spinach Casserole
"My whole family liked it! My daughter didn't even know she was eating spinach! I cut the recipe in half but doubled the artichokes. Next time I would use half the amount of lemon juice."
"I did not layer. I mixed all the ingredients together and the result was still dry (I've made this twice). I think if you doubled the sauce ingredients it would greatly improve the result because the actual flavor is good."
"I've made this several times for dinner parties and most of my guests enjoy and ask for this recipe. It takes quite a bit of effort to prepare and is costly, but a special treat. Goes a long way, like maybe 16-18 servings. I have found that it needs to cook longer than indicated ... like one hour. Also I prepare the day before and bake the day to be served."
