Creamed Spinach

With this recipe, I’ll show you how to make the best creamed spinach ever – and guess what? It is not expensive at all because it is not made with cream! If you so wish, added cream will do no harm, but a white sauce is what makes this dish creamy. Even the cheese is a fancy extra. You may also top your dish with some crumbled feta cheese if you so wish.
