This was excellent. One thing I did to lower the calories was to cook the bacon first, separately, and drain the grease. Then I sauteed the onions and garlic in EVOO. Then I added the mushrooms, spinach and finally the bacon. Next time I will substitute water for half the EVOO, and only if it needs it, but I found that the mushrooms probably produced as much extra liquid as would have been required. We included all the bacon since this was to be the basis for our main dish, but if I were making it for a side dish, half the bacon would have been plenty.
Awesome. Omitted the bacon, used more like 4 cups of spinach and used baby bella mushrooms. Topped it with Prawns/Shrimp in Creamy Mustard Sauce which was a downright amazing combo. THANKS.
I was disappointed that this dish was not a serious "greens" side dish - once it was cooked there was a TON of bacon as compared to vegetables, and as the nutrition facts show, this is aactually very fatty and greasy dish. Now my husband loved it, of course! But if you'd like the main course to be healthy and to consist mainly of the spinach and/or the mushrooms, this is not the recipe.
This was great! My kids even loved it and asked me to make it more often! Made it exactly like the recipe. Thanks!
I left out the bacon for dietary reasons and this still turned out fantastic. Simple ingredients, simple instructions and simply full of flavor. We will have this often.
