Low fat Crock Pot Creamed Spinach will be the star of your holiday meal!
This is a recipe that shows up in my holiday menu almost every year. It's cheesy, easy and delicious.
It's so decadent you'll never miss the rest of the calories I cut by making it low fat!
In fact I can almost promise you'll be asked to make this Crock Pot Creamed Spinach again.
The original recipe I used called for processed American cheese and too many strange ingrediants, so I shook it up adding smooth natural cream cheese and ricotta. You can also sub cottage cheese for the ricotta.
The finished product comes out decadent and delicious! And since it's made in the Crock Pot you can easily work on the rest of the meal while this is cooking.
