Wonderful side dish I also used 1 lb. of fresh spinach 2 cloves garlic (minced) 1/4 c. skim milk & 1/4 c. spicy hummus -- instead of the mayonnaise -- used only 2 T. bread crumbs along w/2 T. parmesan. It was absolutely delicious & will make over & over again but will have to double or triple recipe (when rest of kids are home). There was just enough for myself husband & son (of course they had much bigger servings because it's so good!! I wanted more but I'm trying to watch my calorie intake:) for a while. Pros: Quick & easy Read More

Even my husband who usually despises spinach liked this. Used frozen spinach and it was super easy. This will definitely be in our rotation. Read More

Wonderful break from the ordinary I loved the idea from another reader who substituted Hummus for the mayo. I did that and I also added minced shallots because I had a piece in the frig that needed using. I will definitely make this again. Pros: Tasty crunchy top Cons: Adds a few calories to plain spinach Read More
