Creamed Spinach

Like  so much other comfort food, creamed spinach is hardly found on menus (or homes, for that matter) anymore, with the exception of steakhouses where it usually is one of the standard side dishes. I just love spinach, no matter how it is prepared, but the price goes without a doubt to creamed spinach. Following is the simple instruction how to prepare this great dish.

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !

  1. Y. um. Easy yet very classic. I simply add a little cream cheese or Mascarpone for richness. Calorie add Yes, but so adds to the creaminess and richness
