    used table cream for the milk as we are on that low card thingy. Wonderful flavor and I'm sure now we will make often.

    Fantastic and easy. Used it as a sauce for pasta and steamed cauliflower. It's a keeper!

    I used less cram cheese and no milk and it still was good. Makes the spinach taste more mild.
