    I've been making this for DW for years. Remember to drain the spinach by squeezing in a towel. For company, I use 4 boxes spinach, add the sour cream with 1/2 box room temp cream cheese, use 1/2 envelope soup mix. Crush 2 cups Pepperidge Farm regular stuffing mix. Sprinkle one cup in bottom of casserole and one cup on top. Looks much better and adds a crunchy creamy texture our family loves with less sodium.

    I made this for a Thanksgiving potluck at church. At the end, only one spoonful was taken. I brought it home and my husband tried it and loved it! It was not pretty, but was very good. I think next time I will put cheese on top so that people will eat it, but at home we will continue to make it like the recipe says.

    This recipe was a huge hit at our house! I added a bit of freshley grated parmesan to the top.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! This was absolutely delicious! My husband, who, in ten years, I have never seen eat spinach, loved this (and so did I). I loved that it was so simple to make, and, yet, is was just fabulous...even company-worthy! I did not have packaged onion soup mix on hand, so I used Copycat Lipton Onion Soup Mix Recipe#24952, and it worked perfectly with this. This is going to be my new staple fancy spinach recipe, for special occasions, or any occasion. Thanks for sharing such a gem!

    As a casserole this was just O.K. In fact my husband said he would much prefer plain spinach. However as a quesadilla filling the next day it was OUTSTANDING. I just needed to use a little sprinkle of low fat cheese - not much at all - and they were some of the best quesadillas I've made.


I live in a small town in California's central valley, just south of Fresno. I have been an Elementary school teacher for 25 years, but am taking a year off for health reasons. I have 2 children, 2 1/2 grandchildren (third is due in January) and finally am having some time to enjoy them. I like to read, quilt,play on the computer geocache, and now have enough time to learn how to cook more than just a few staples.
