  1. We are trying this tonight but one question…. what is “creαm cheese mixture”? Am I missing something? I will just put cream cheese by itself and hope for the best until I hear back.

  2. Delicious! I made a half recipe. Used a little less cream cheese and added some sautéed mushrooms along with the spinach. It was so good. Served with riced cauliflower. Will definitely make again

  3. I added some lemon zest and a squeeze of lemon juice to the cream cheese. This is a great recipe, easy but looks impressive enough for company. Thanks
