    CarrolJ's Note:

    I wanted to create a dish which would would be a combination of the flavors of Spinach Dip and Alfredo Sauce. I love the flavors of both of them and thought that if I could put the correct amounts of various ingredients together I could make a Italian Style Casserole which would qualify as 'comfort food' and yet have a gourmet taste. Do not be afraid of this recipe being too complicated. It is very easy to put together and I was very specific so that even a beginner cook cook make this dish. This is a meal in itself and if you added a loaf of hot crusty bread you wouldn't need anything else.

      This dish does take some time to prepare but was good. My DH loved it and had seconds. I thought it was a creative chicken and spinach casserole but really didn't think the spinach DIP flavor came through as much as expected. The recipe filled a 13x9 baking pan and could have been halved for my family. It had a nice flavor but I may try a simpler alfredo dish next time.

      Delicious! This recipe had great flavor and was enjoyed be the whole family.The only change that I made to this dish was to leave out the mushrooms as we are not mushroom eaters. However it did have alot of steps in the prep work and took quite awhile to prepare. As much as I enjoyed eating this I don't think it will be a dish I make often as I prefer to make things that take a little less time to make.

      Sounds good, but a lot of trouble. Plan to make it, though.
