      Really good and easy to make. I buy the frozen whole-leaf spinach, so that's what I used here. Since I have to have onions in everything, I added a bit of finely chooped onions. It's not too runny or too rich. It's got a nice pleasantly mild flavor. I'll be sure to make this again. Thanx for sharing!

      My husband and I thought this spinach was very good. I made half a recipe, since I knew my kids wouldn't eat spinach (boy are they missing out!) As to the other reviewers comment that the spinach was bitter, ours had no bitter taste at all. Perhaps it was a bad batch of spinach or an off brand? I used Bird's Eye and it was fine. I played around with the recipe just a tiny bit and added about 3 ounces of swiss cheese to the saucepan when I added in the parmesan. I felt that the swiss really complimented the parmesan flavor and it also bound the spinach together. Thanks for a good side-dish, cookiedog!

      I know that this recipe has great possibilities, so I will have to fix it again and then update my review. I followed directions, but the spinach was NOT cooked, and tasted bitter. I will be doing it again, and either cooking the spinach before mixing it with the cream, or getting a different brand. I love spinach and I love anything gratin, so I know if I can get it right that I will love it. I may also try it with canned spinach. Cookiedog, believe me I haven't finished with it!!!!
