Creamed Spinach with Mozzarella

I have another delicious side dish recipe for you today. Restaurant-Style Creamed Spinach with Mozzarella !

Creamed Spinach has always been one of my favorite sides, and it is actually served in most restaurants as well.

After buying some of those ready made frozen Creamed Spinach boxes which you re-heat and serve for many years, I decided to try my own recipe.

This was all guess work, but I wanted it to have that same taste as one of our chain restaurants. Believe it or not, the first try was spot on ! Either I was just lucky the first time or creamed spinach is just an easy dish!.

The only thing I added/changed was to add some shaved Mozzarella. Nowadays, we have this side dish with a lot of different main meat dishes, from roast beef to pork chops.

I absolutely love how quick and easy this Creamed Spinach is to make. I prep the vegetables beforehand, but only cook the dish minutes before we are ready to serve dinner.

This looks pretty good to me, but Sam will absolutely not eat creamed spinach. But...I'm liking Mels idea of serving it over pasta! Maybe I can sneak it in!
