      This recipe is so simple to make, and it tastes absolutely fantastic. So many people overlook spinach as a side dish, but it is one of the best veggies to serve. The idea of using JalapeƱo Jack Cheese was a wonderful additon. It gave the dish another layer of flavor that was wonderful and unexpected. I will definately keep this recipe in my t&t cookbook. Thanks for sharing.

      Hooray for Madeline! I made this tonight for dinner with baked fish and it was great. I make the sauce and then place fresh spinach leaves on top and covered it, when they were wilted I blended them in with the sauce. Since we are trying to put more fiber in our diet I put in a can of well drained garbanzo beans,too. Very nice side dish, but I will add more flour next time to take up the liquid from the spinach. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

      Spinach delish!!! I substituted cream for the evap milk and I didn't have monterey pepper jack, so I used a cheddar/jack cheese combo and diced a jalepeno. I also added a couple of tablespoons of crispy bacon--WOW! I think the cheddar, cream, and bacon made this recipe a keeper! YUM!
