  1. This sauce was great! I made a few changes (probably more than a few) to suit my own taste and to make more of the sauce. I chopped and cooked up 2 chicken breasts in olive oil, once done, I transferred to a bowl and set aside. To to skillet I added 2 minced cloves of garlic and 1 thinly sliced shallot to the butter and sauteed for a minute or so. Then I added the remainder of ingredients and also added about 1 T chopped sun dried tomatoes. I also ended up using a 5 oz container of fresh organic spinach instead of frozen. I used a bit of chicken stock and more of the whipping cream and added a 2 tablespoons parmesan and the chicken. I had to thicken the sauce just a tiny bit with flour but it was delicious!! Tossed with pasta then devoured! Thanks for sharing!
  2. An excellent side dish, it wasn't heavy at all like the usual "creamed spinach" but it was very tasty and satisfying. Thank you.


My husband and I moved to Tennessee from Pennsylvania in 2005. We absolutely love it here, especially being near the Smoky Mountains. My kids are grown and are out of the house. I am a nurse practitioner, work for Evercare, a division of United Healthcare, caring for elderly patients in nursing homes. My husband and I love the outdoors, and we especially enjoy hiking in the Smoky Mountains. I also enjoy doing Jazzercise as often as I can get there. We have 2 spoiled rotten kitties, Elizabeth and Harvey, and an equally spoiled rotten yellow lab, Hayley.
