"I did not like this as much as my bf. We omitted the onions because I don't care for them. I omitted the garlic salt because I sauteed fresh spinach in garlic and olive oil. I thought the sour cream was a little overpowering. Next time (which my bf informed me there needs to be) I will half the sour cream and up the milk and cream cheese. Definitely a good base recipe that I will adjust for my tastes. Thanks!!"
"This was so yummy. I omitted the onions, because I was out of them, but it still turned out tasty. My husband, who is not a big veggie eater, even scarfed it up. This will definately be made again at our house. Thanks for posting!"
"I halved the recipe and made a few changes to pump it up to a "company casserole" but the original recipe probably rocks, too: *Instead of lowly macaroni, I used rigatoni. * Instead of powdered garlic, I used 1-1/2 teaspoons fresh garlic *Instead of defrosted spinach, I used a 10 oz. bag of fresh spinach with the stems removed. I left the leaves whole and layered the casserole as follows: spinach, all of the other ingredients, 2nd layer of spinach, and final layer of the other ingredients. * I sprinkled about 1/2 cup of crispy cooked bacon bits on top of the first layer of spinach. Warning: Fresh spinach takes a lot more room than cooked spinach so you'll need to use a 9 X 13 casserole dish for this 1/2 size recipe and you may need to squish down the last layer to keep the casserole within the confines of the dish."
"I thought this was going to be good as I was mixing it up but I was wrong - it was wonderful! :) I made exactly to the recipe except I halved it and used skim not low-fat milk (and added extra pepper). Delicious! Thanks for the recipe Parsley!"
"YUM! I made this today and it was really good. I didnt use any low fat ingredients though. I also used low carb noodles which was awesome. So cheesy and delicious. And it did kinda taste like spinach dip! Thanks Parsley!!!"
"This was very yummy, and a pantry staple, because I had everything on hand. I think I would put the onion in the macarroni cooking water for the last 2 minutes or so to soften it up some. Will make again, thanks."
"I would make this again but I would use less sour cream and I would saute the onions before adding them to the mix. Used some fresh spinach and some low-fat mozzarella cheese. Thanks Parsley! :)"
"I really enjoyed this dish. When I took my first bite, I said, "This tastes like spinach dip." And then the light bulb went off: next time I'm adding artichokes! Also I think I'll sautee the onions first to soften them before I add them to the mixture as well as add some fresh garlic. I can't wait to try this again. Thanks for posting!"
"It was really easy to make and my husband thought it tasted great. It's a good way to get my son to eat more vegetables."
"This was yummy, comfort food for sure. I used whole wheat elbow macaroni and 20 oz spinach (mine came in 10 oz blocks), so a few changes, but I thought we still got the benefit of the yummy cheesiness and the healthy spinach! Thanks, Parsley!"
