Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! WOW!!! This was absolutely delicious, yummy, tasty, good, superb, flavorful, easy, ( the list goes on!). Definitly one of the simplest delicious recipes I've made in a while! I added about 1 1/2 cups of chopped thawed broccoli. My family immensly enjoyed this addition to our Sunday dinner. My sister said, " You could just keep eating & eating this!" Kraft thanks for another wonderful easy recipe! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a church picnic. I made this for a church picnic. I asked my husband to put it in the oven and bring it to the picnic, I went on ahead to help set up. He was late and over half of the people already ate. Well after everyone had eaten I went back to clean up and collect my dish and it was completely empty. Other dishes that were there from the start still had leftovers! I'm making this again for Thanksgiving.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I thought this was dreadful. I thought this was dreadful. I will not be making this again. I feel like I wasted some good ingredients making a sub-par recipe. Although I was prepared for this dish to be on the drier, not so creamy side, I was not prepared for the combination of dry and bland. I am not going to waste time trying to tweak this one. It goes straight in the 'never make again' pile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an amazing recipe that we have already made twice. This is an amazing recipe that we have already made twice. It's like a creamy, fluffy, cheesy spinach casserole. We tried it with and without fat free ingredients. Definitely tastes better with full fat, but the fat free version was still very tasty. Prep time is longer than 10 minutes, especially if you need to thaw the spinach in the microwave, then drain it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can never get my kids to each spinach. I can never get my kids to each spinach. I don't blame them I don't like it either. But this was really good. I only used items I had in my kitchen, so I changed it a little. I used Monterey Jack instead of Cheddar and I used bread crumbs instead of Ritz crackers. Next time I will make the way it should be. My kids even had seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband LOVES this casserole. My husband LOVES this casserole. It reheats great, but he doesn't mind eating it cold. I couldn't believe I could find a delicious recipe using ingredients that needed to be rescued (ranch dressing, tub cream cheese - and we ALWAYS have frozen spinach on hand). I even made it for Thanksgiving and it was gobbled down!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I was a little disappointed with this dish. I was a little disappointed with this dish. I love spinach and the ingredients sounded good with the exception of the ranch dressing, but I think the spinach got lost in this dish. I found it very heavy for a side dish and on the dry side. I would not make this dish again. Sorry.
