My family, including my 16 y/o dd all thought this was really good. I used a 12 oz bag of spinach and about 1 3/4 cup of fat free half & half. I also added a cooked and diced chicken breast. I thought there was plenty of spinach, but should have cut back to 1 tsp of salt (and I'm a salt lover). I also used a mixture of mozzerella, parmesan and cheddar cheeses. The casserole did turn out very watery, but it was due to the water that cooked out of the spinach, not the sauce. I tried soaking up as much as I could with paper towels, but there was still quite a bit of liquid at the bottom of the casserole dish. I just drained it as I was serving and it taste really good. I will try this again using swis and adding it between the layers as someone suggested. Thanks for yummy dish. **UPDATE** Made for Christmas dinner, but this time used a 15 oz bag of frozen spinach, well squeezed, and about 1 2/3 cup of cream, then mixed the spinach with the mushroom mixture and it was wonderful! It wasn't watery at all and my DH brought me the empty dish saying "for future reference, this was the first thing to go". I again used a mixture of mozzerella, parm and cheddar. Everyone loved it and commented on it. Thank you again - I will definitely be making this regularly!

Bev, this was outstanding. I have always loved the combination of spinach, mushrooms and swiss cheese. The only change I made was to add extra cheese between layers (love swiss cheese). This recipe will go into my permanent recipe file.

Wonderful, rich and savory spinach dish. I knew I would like this - Bev's recipes are always great, but this one is really wonderful.I used fresh spinach and followed the recipe exactly. Everyone raved over this and I thought it was fairly easy to make.

I might try this again, with modifications. I too found it impossible (at least when using fresh chopped spinach) to get the full amount into the 1 1/2 qt casserole. It was too much liquid after baking. I used the water bath and even left it in 15 extra minutes in hopes of evaporating some off. The cheese on top became tough as a result:(

This was delicious, but I just realized that I didn't follow the instructions, as far as preparation. I cooked the spinach first and then mixed the sauce with the spinach then put in the oven until it was browned on top. Will make again!
