Herbed Baked Spinach

Parmesan cheese and garlic liven up this spinach dish, which goes well with met entrees and main-dish casseroles. Sometimes, I use broccoli as a spinach substitute. It's equally delicious.

    This turned out fantastic! I hate a bag of frozen spinach that's been in my freezer forever and wanted to get rid of it, so I googled "Make frozen spinach taste good" and it lead me here. My son hates spinach on its own but he tore this stuff up. I didn't have parm but I had some old cheddar and it's got that stinky, pungent taste kinda like parm, so it worked perfectly. I also added a lot more garlic because we're pretty obsessed with garlic, and a lil bit of chili powder and salt to jazz it up.

    Am making the recipe for dinner tonite. I would like to comment to "The Minister"...this is the second review by you that I have read. Both were inane and off the subject. Try as I might I simply cannot get any meaningful input from your review. Please try cooking the recipes you review, and give an honest opinion. Or move on.

    Who uses frozen spinach?! Ugh! Use the real thing. Recipe will be awesome. (I gag on frozen spinach; more stems than leaves)

    This was delicious - my new favourite way to make spinach in the oven. I found the liquid absorbed very quickly, so the second time I made it I added a little more milk to make it creamier.
