Artichoke Spinach Casserole

Although he isn't a fan of spinach, my husband loves this dish. The combination of ingredients may sound unusual, but the flavors meld well. It's an excellent side vegetable for a formal dinner. —Judy Johnson, Missoula, Montana

    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 made this for a big family Christmas potluck dinner. A couple of people asked for the recipe. Even my dad liked it and he doesn't like spinach or artichokes, I just discovered.I did make a couple of modifications.1 - I substituted a bag of thawed frozen cauliflower for the tomatoes since my sister doesn't like tomatoes.2. I added a 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese to the topping mixture.I will probably make this again and if I do, I may add in some cream cheese and/or more Parmesan.

    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.
