WOW! This was SO delicious! As a spinach lover and as one also partial to artichoke hearts, I just HAD to make the first version. I added some minced garlic (just softened in a couple of drops of oil in the microwave), a generous pinch of nutmeg and probably 1/4 of a cup of pinenuts: all go so well with spinach. Fabulous! I'll be making these again, but I don't think I'll be venturing past number one. Rather I'll just be nicking another ingredient (wine) from topper number two! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Anme! Made for PRMR.
I made #3. Everyone felt it was a touch bland, but was perfect with just a little bit of salt. I did use the optional nutmeg, but didn't taste it so I don't think I used enough. I'll admit, I didn't measure that ingredient, just sprinkled some in. My mother says it's way better than sour cream on baked potatoes and my DD thought it was the most wonderful thing and dipped her pork chops and veggies in it too. Thanks for an easy cheese sauce!
We thought this a bit contived to fit in RSC 11 and now believe it should be three recipes. In any case, all three are delicious and won me over on a fork. Toppings 1 and 3 resemble fondue. Topping 2 is entirely different, a thin clear sauce, calling for a different presentation. I wouldn't serve the three together unless I was hosting a party.

I'm just a girl whos passion is for cooking, well some people would call it an obbsession rather.... I am a college student at RIT going for food management and prep, my favortie things! Most of my orignal recipes are made from left overs since I cook for one or two most days so there are always left overs in my house. I play mad scientist most days in my kitchen with left over chicken breasts lol. I am also a health food freak and a major gym rat, so I am always on the look out for good subs for the more unhealthy ingredients in most recipes. Also I am just starting to take pictures of the food I make on this site, so my photos are anything but stellar yet so I will not be offended in any way if you chooses not to use my pictures. <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/goldsparkle.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <a href="http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view¤t=tish2.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/tish2.jpg" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=newtaginethbanner.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/newtaginethbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CV.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-11/484938/Spelling-Bee-stick2jpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/ScrapBook.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/ApronSwap2007.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/RedWhiteBlue.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/28636/zwt3banner.jpg"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a209/tlonghorn/banners/BBQ2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/TasteofYellow.jpg> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg">
