Reviews forSpinach-Parm Casserole
"We love spinach, and this a quick, easy and delicious new way to make it. But I didn't see the need to cook the baby spinach in water first and have to wash another pan. Halved the recipe. Made the butter sauce with garlic and seasonings in a deep skillet, then added baby spinach and turned with tongs until just wilted. Put in small baking dish, Parmesan on top, baked while meat rested. Broiled at the end to get cheese browned a bit. A wee bit watery at edges- soaked that up with paper towel before serving. Really yummy!"
"Really good! This recipe had the spirit of a creamed spinach without the cream. Great flavor. Definitely will make again."
"I love spinach .... I could eat it every day and I'm always looking for new spinach recipes to try. This one is a winner! I didn't have fresh spinach on hand so I made it with 3 10-ounce packages of frozen chopped spinach that I thawed and drained WELL and I also mixed in 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheese to the spinach before putting it in the baking dish. I think I would cut back on the garlic a little but, other than that..... this is one awesome spinach recipe!"
"I don't have a review yet but I do have a question. Has anyone tried this with frozen spinach and if so how did it work out?"
"I've not made it yet but on my list for this week. I plan on saut?ing the spinach instead of boiling and then toss under the broiler until the cheese it browned."
"Oh yum! This is very tasty. I divide the recipe in half for the two of us. My husband loves it!"
"Made this a few weeks ago with tenderloin steaks. How fresh and delish !"
"My daughter and I liked this, but my husband didn't. Will have to keep it for when he goes on his hunting or fishing trips!"
"This is a really tasty way to eat spinach-loved it!"
"As soon as I saw this in my TOH magazine, I knew I wanted to try it. I am glad I did! My family likes spinach but I rarely serve it 'plain'. And sometimes there are just too many ingredients in a spinach recipe that disguise what the spinach really is. This was perfect and we all loved it. I will definitely make this again."
