This dish saved me this Easter. I had to bring side dishes, but they ALL had to be made in advance! This worked out great. It's so hard to find a veggie side dish that can be prepared in advance, and still taste great, and no seem overcooked when re-heated. Good measurements on the salt. 1 TBSP seems like alot, but with the amount of spinach in the full recipe, it definitely needs all of it!!
I'm so happy I found this recipe! It's perfect for this Somersizer, as long as I leave out the flour. This freezes wonderfully, so I always have a portion waiting for me to take to the office for lunch.
I cut the recipe in half, as I only needed 4 servings. It was wonderful! Easy to prepare, and good flavor. Definitely will be making this again, but think I will make a few subs to try to cut the fat a bit.
This was a good (and really rich) side dish. I don't think the recipe includes quite enough salt to really bring the flavors to life, so I will probably add more next time I make it. I added a few minced cloves of garlic along with the onion and that definitely added to the dish's flavor.
Easy preparation and delicious! This was my teenager's favorite part of the meal. Spinach? My kids? lol I made the whole recipe because I knew it wouldn't go to waste. I love spinach. Like Mirj, I omitted the flour, but next time I will try it with the flour to see the difference. I love that this calls for 5 pkgs of spinach. One little ol' package goes so fast. We're having leftover's this morning with an asparagus-tomato fritatta. Mmm.
I prepared this as written but found that for all that work it lacked depth. It was too oniony, I would cut the onion by half. Also it needed a little more flavor, despite all the cheese and cream. Perhaps some garlic?
*****Incredibly Fantastic***** I needed a special recipe for this past Christmas dinner, for my spinach-loving vegetarian daughter. Something to be the "star" of the meal instead of the turkey. After reading various spinach recipe and reviews...I chose this. It was a HUGE hit, and everyone wanted the recipe. A star was born * I made this recipe again for Valentine's Day when my son and his new bride (also vegetarians) came to visit. Once again.... awesome*. Again the recipe was passed on. I follow the recipe exactly and will most definately make it again~ Purrfect
Great recipe. So easy to throw together and I love that it can be made ahead and refrigerated until ready to bake. I served it with a rib roast and twice baked potatoes for Christmas for a very elegant meal.
This is one of my favorite Barefoot Contessa recipes. Thanks for posting it! I just made this for Thanksgiving for the second time, and everyone loved it.
Recipezaar, you did it again. What a wonderful dish! The only thing I added was sliced garlic, about 2 cloves, which I sauteed with the onion. Thanks, this was just the recipe I was looking for and will make it over and over again.
