Makeover Spinach Casserole

Even Janet Hornsby's kids would eat their spinach when served this dish, but she wanted to serve it without the guilt. We slimmed it down so she could do just that. The new recipe has a whopping 80% less fat and saturated fat, and the calories and cholesterol were reduced by more than 60%.—Taste of Home's Test Kitchen

    I have made an error on the rating as I thought 1 (one) was best. It looks like we didn't like this but we did. Some of the family thought it needed more salt. I thought it needed punching up. I had add a dash of Tabasco and nutmeg but next time will add more and also some onion. Be sure not to over-bake it. It will go from almost baked to over-baked easily.
