  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add spinach and cook until wilted, stirring constantly. Remove from the skillet and drain in a colander. Try to squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  2. Melt the butter in the skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and onions; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach and stir in the heavy cream. Sprinkle in the provolone cheese and stir to melt and coat the spinach. Once the provolone has melted, stir in the Parmesan cheese and continue to cook and stir until thickened. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.

excellent - with changes. I made it the way it was written the first time but thought there was way too much cream. The second time I sauteed the onion & garlic in butter, precooked & drained the spinach and added it to the pot and added about 1/4 cup 1/2 & 1/2, a heaping tablespoon of reduced fat cream cheese and about 1/4 cup parmesan and a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg and it was to die for. Rich and creamy...yum!


Excellent! I thought the measurement of '6 slices provolone cheese, shredded' was a little funky so I diced my 6 slices and measured it. Its about 1 1/4 cups, equivalent to shredded, so about the same amount of provolone as cream, in case you are puzzled like me. I made this recipe as written. Yummy, garlicky-cheesy good. Thanks!


All my favorite ingredients - cheese, butter, garlic, cream and on! This had lots of flavor and was excellent. I was looking for something to mix with pasta, so it didn't matter that it was a bit thin due to using 1/2 and 1/2 instead of cream. It made quite a nice dish and thickened as it cooled. I'll do it again... thanks!
