Recipe

Creamed spinach is a classic holiday dish but it's easy enough to make it for any dinner. This version is lightened up from the traditional cream laden recipes and uses just enough cheese and and cream to get the right consistency without completely overpowering anything. You can use fat free half and half or nonfat canned evaporated milk for a lower fat count, but I prefer the real thing. And don't skimp on the nutmeg, it's the secret to a classic creamed spinach dish.
