Placing the creamed spinach in a casserole and topping it with sliced tomatoes gives the dish a bright, festive touch of red and green.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Remove large stems from spinach. Tear spinach into 1-inch pieces; place in a colander. Rinse spinach under cold water; drain. Set aside.

Step 3

Place a large Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add spinach; cover and cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Add cream cheese, oregano, salt, and pepper. Uncover and cook an additional minute or until cream cheese melts. Spoon spinach mixture into a 1-quart gratin dish or shallow casserole coated with cooking spray. Arrange tomato slices in a single layer on top of spinach,and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Has potential but would reduce the amount of oregano and salt

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.
