Creamed Spinach

Creamed Spinach

I’m always amazed when I order creamed spinach at a restaurant. Made with what must be more butter and cream than actual spinach, it is so incredibly tasty. At home, I try to use more reasonable amounts of butter, cream and Parmesan cheese, adding creaminess and flavor without turning this into a 500-calories dish. :)
