    Mirj's Note:

    This recipe came about because I'm Somersizing and was looking for something fast and easy and basically all I had in the house that fit into my diet was frozen spinach and cream cheese. This was ready in minutes. I actually find myself making this often, either as a side dish, or I eat it straight out of the bowl. I told Yooped this easy SS diet trick, and he twisted my arm so much I had to post it here at Zaar. Even for those who aren't Somersizing, this is a fantastic and simple creamed spinach side dish.

      Yes, I "twisted your arm" to post this gem of a recipe! I'm honored to be the first review! I made this when Mirj first described it in the Somersize recipes thread. I used a small tub of whipped cream cheese with garlic and dill. I also added a can of chopped mushroomus and a few healthy splashes of hot sauce. This recipe is fantastic because it's exceptional in it's original form, yet the door is wide open for experimentation! I've made this three times, and the last time I substituted frozen chopped broccoli for the spinach, and it was great! Thanks Mirj for a legal, easy recipe!

      Fantabulous. Just the thing for a strep-throat sufferer [me]. I took Yooper's hint and used the flavored whipped cream cheese. Thanks Mirj for another winner!!

      This is so GOOD! I cut back on the amounts, as I was only making it for myself, and really regret having done so - - I want more! :) I used fresh spinach and reduced the initial cooking time, and then only zapped for a couple of seconds with the cream cheese. I totally forgot to add the hot pepper sauce, but will add it when I make this again tomorrow. Thanks so much!
