LOVE this recipe. I added a touch more onion and garlic, and a little less Parmesan and I's better than BM. I also started with the butter, onion, and garlic in the same saucepan, added sauce ingredients, added spinach, and built the entire recipe in there...anything to avoid washing another pan!

This was a hit with my spinach loving older boy. Since it's spinach season here I used fresh, but will make with the frozen variety during winter months. A very good side dish with roasts! Thanks for posting.
