      I love creamed spinach so enjoyed this twist on the standard recipe. I did make a few changes while preparing the recipe trying to cut back on the calories. I used far less oil in both prep steps and used lower fat cream cheese. I always squeeze spinach dry after draining so did that here. We enjoyed the sweetened pine nuts, but would make the recipe again without them. The flavor of the dish is enough without them. Reviewed for RSC #11.
