This rich and creamy spinach dish takes minutes to make. If I'm expecting guests, I'll double or triple the recipe. —Leann Ross, San Tan Valley, Arizona

    I add 1 tbs of onion powder when I add the garlic to the olive oil and butter. I take a 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and add it after the cream cheese has melted all the way and you have a creamy thick sauce but I add a 1/4tsp of potato starch to the Parmesan cheese before, it stops it from stringing while your adding it to your roux. This is a wonderful recipe and my Grandma from Hungary would love it as well.

    This wasn't a big hit in my family. Only thing I did different then the recipe was chop the mushrooms instead of slice them.
