    What a surprisingly yummy, creamy, satisfying side dish. Instead of frozen spinach, I threw in a couple cups of coarsely chopped fresh spinach. My hubby loved it, too! - 10/25/12

  • I made this for Thansgiving and it was awesome. I used a bulk wild rice blend and neufchatel cheese.I also added 1/2 c minced celery for crunch. It was maybe a little dry, so next time I will add a little milk to the cheese. Yummy and full of veggies! - 11/29/09
