      This was good. I made this exactly as instructed except I did not have light cream cheese so I used regular cream cheese. Thanks for the post.

      I also used frozen spinach and it turned out fine. Next time I'll have to try fresh. I think the nutmeg is key. It adds great flavor. Definitely a keeper!

      Simpley Fantastic! I used 2 boxes of chopped frozen spinch and also regular cream cheese as that I what I had on hand. I also omitted the shallots and added frozen pearl onions. This side dish went so well with our steaks.
