      This was fabulous with the adjustments I made: - doubled the garlic and all the spices - did not cook and puree the spinach. Simply added in the cream, then the fresh spinach, stirred to barely cook the spinach and added the cheese - sprinkled fresh lemon juice on top - pine nuts would also make a good topper

      I forgot to review this wonderful recipe. I once made it for a special occasion together with a flavorful salmon dish and it was great! I will try this again for sure!
