Creamed Spinach – Lightened Up

posted September 28, 2010 by Gina

A creamy blend of spinach, shallots, parmesan cheese, and Boursin Light makes a rich and flavorful side dish. A low fat version of a steakhouse favorite. Your family and friends will love this, and only 3 points plus per serving, so you won’t feel guilty eating this.

I love this with steak, but this is also great with turkey meatloaf. Boursin Light can be found in the cheese section of most supermarkets. If you can’t find it, light cream cheese or Laughing Cow could work as a replacement. Leftovers can be frozen.
