    This was amazing--flavorful and very pretty--but you'd be wise to double the recipe. It's so good everyone will want more than it yields. (which isn't a lot)

    Yum! This tasted like spinach alfredo. In fact, I used the leftovers on top of some leftover pasta the next day. Very creamy and delicious!

    Delicious, easy to make, and low fat for a creamed spinach. I was heartbroken when I lost my last low fat creamed spinach recipe, but this one is vastly superior.

    Best creamed spinach recipe I've ever had! Definitely double or even triple the recipe if you want to feed 4 or more. I especially like the crunch of toasted Ritz crackers, so I used those in the topping instead of breadcrumbs. (Crush 1 sleeve of crackers, add to a pan with 2tbsp melted butter, mix until dark brown). The crackers and the cheese made a wonderfully crunchy topping!

    The recipe is excellent with wonderful flavor and interest and my guests loved it, but in no way is the recipe as written enough for 6 servings. I doubled the amount of fresh spinach and and barely had enough for 8 servings. I'll definitely make this again, but double the recipe.

    Made this for Thanksgiving for 7 and doubled the recipe. This was delicious! It is the only dish that was completely gone at the end of the night. I used Panko bread crumbs and freshly grated parm. So yummy!

    Oh, my. WOW. I would have eaten the entire casserole with a spoon had my family not been waiting for dinner to magically appear on the table. Even my picky children loved it. Rich, creamy, delicious. Insanely easy to prepare. The only subs I made were to use gluten-free breadcrumbs rather than regular ones and cherry tomatoes rather than regular ones, since they were all I had on hand. Beautiful, delicious, easy, healthful. This recipe has it all!

    Somewhat disapointed. After reading the reveiws expected it to be a 5 star recepie. It was a good dish, but I had been expecting great. The tomato and breadcrumb/parm cheese made the dish. The creamed spinach itself was rather watery. Others had noted this, but I didn't want to drain the spinach and lose nutrients. I took the advice of others and doubled the recipe. I also used italian bread crumbs and added garlic and italian seasoning to the spinach mix.

    Great recipe. Husband and I both loved it. I made it with panko and it was yum. I would agree with other reviewers that you should double the recipe if you want to feed more that 2-3 people. Will definitely make again!

    Great recipe but sure doesn't make very much! I am glad I doubled the recipe....I could have used more for my Thanksgiving guests. I used 1/3 fat block creamed cheese instead of tub creamed cheese. It wasn't too watery. I also used baby spinach since the store was out of reg fresh spinach. I didn't tear it, just put it in whole. I made a batch for my gluten free guests and just put gluten free bread crumbs on that batch.

    Very good! Turned out perfectly. Hubby & I liked it quite a lot, and my 8YO son asked for seconds. I've made this several times now, and I just added lemon zest into the mixture tonight and LOVED the difference! It's good either way though!

    Has potential but would reduce the amount of oregano and salt
