Delicious! I used fresh spinach and did cut back a bit on the sugar. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2014. :)

This is really good. It doesn't tell you in the recipe, but I put the bacon and onion back into the spinach. Since I am diabetic, I used about 1/8th cup Organic Raw Blue Agave {a low glycemic organic sweetener- which is slowly absorbed into the body and prevents blood sugar spikes. It's 1 1/4 times sweeter than sugar, but tastes really good. I can't stand artificial sweeteners.}. Thanks for the good recipe for spinach.
