I like spinach. I usually eat it in salads. I hear it’s actually better for you to eat it slightly cooked. Well this recipe, Spinach-Parm Casserole, fits the bill, and it is my 365 easy recipe for the day!
2 lbs. fresh baby spinach
5 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. olive oil
3 garlic gloves, minced
1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
3/4 tsp. salt
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400º. In a stockpot, bring 5 cups water to a boil. Add spinach’ cook, covered, 1 minute or just until wilted. Drain well.
2. In a small skillet, heat butter and oil over medium-low heat. Add garlic, Italian seasoning and salt; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until garlic is tender.
3. Spread spinach in a greased 8-inch square baking dish. Drizzle with butter mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 10-15 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.
The casserole was quite tasty, albeit a little…slimy? But I got past that and enjoyed the yummy, nutritious dish.
