4 oz. of cream cheese
9 oz. of frozen creamed spinach
2 tablespoons of lemon juice

Remove the mushrooms and set aside.
Heat a frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil. Place the chopped garlic and the frozen creamed spinach. When the creamed spinach has melted add the lemon juice and the creamed cheese. Stir until the cream cheese is well incorporated into the spinach.
Spoon the mixture into the mushrooms evenly and top with fresh ground black pepper.
