Fresh spinach with mushroom in a sour cream sauce flavored with onions and garlic - a winning flavor combination. Because I was using fresh mushrooms, I started by cooking the mushrooms, onions and garlic in the butter before adding the spinach, salt and fresh ground pepper. The only thing I would do different would be to drain the excess liquid before adding the sour cream and maybe a dash of hot sauce. Thanks Tebo, It's a keeper!

The sour cream made it a bit too tangy for me, but I still enjoyed it. Very easy to prepare and it was really quick as well. Thanks!

I used fresh spinach and mushrooms. Since there was too much liquid, I disregarded the instructions to not boil the sour cream. It boiled down into a rich, thick sauce and my husband and I loved the finished dish.
