I never thought I’d be one to like creamed spinach. I mean cooked spinach isn’t really my thing. But I had a bunch of fresh baby spinach to use up and I figured it couldn’t hurt to try. I knew that once cooked and drained, what seems like a whole bunch of spinach is really just a small amount. So my advice here is go big. Grab a one pound tub of fresh spinach, not just a little bag. Trust me. You won’t have too much, and you will love it and eat it all anyway.

I’ve seen a few recipes for creamed spinach that were almost soupy. I didn’t want that. I wanted garlicky and cheesy. Shredding Parmigiano Reggiano fresh really does make a difference. So does the garlic. I used four cloves of garlic, and could have used more. I’m safe from vampires, at least for tonight.
