      This was a nice way to prepare spinach, and I did not find it too rich (maybe because the cream cooks down). Thanks for sharing this simple yet tasty recipe. Made for ZWT6 by a RedHot Renegade.

      This was very nice, quite rich though. I added a bit too much salt although it ended up being OK. It fitted in well with the meal of roast corned beef. I might try with the yoghurt as Peter suggests.

      I used baby spinach that I rinsed, spun dry and tossed right into the butter added the cream but cooked slow so not to curdle it. Simmered for about 20 minutes. Seasoned with salt, pepper and fresh ground nutmeg! Thanks
