LOOKING for: Frozen Spinach

M. HeathNovember 4, 2000

I'm fond of spinach, even frozen, and would love to have some recipes that call for a 10-oz. package of frozen spinach.

This is good, and it's great for using up whatever's in the veggie drawer (the amounts are approximate):

1 package frozen spinach
1 egg or two egg whites
A cup or so of cottage cheese (regular or low-fat)
Half cup or so of grated hard cheese (any flavor; more if you like cheese)
A cup or so of chopped mushrooms and onions, or any other variety of your favorite veggies, cooked
One half to three quarter's of a cup of bread crumbs (seasoned or plain)
Chopped cooked garlic, to taste
Your favorite seasonings
Salt to taste

Cook spinach according to package directions. Drain well, and combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Turn into a well-"Pammed" medium sized baking dish and bake at 350 until the top is nicely browned and bubbly.

Simple and FAST- yet so good!
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed slightly
8 oz pasta "Radiatore"
8-12 oz mushrooms, sliced
1-3 cloves garlic to taste
olive oil
romano or parmesan cheese (don't use the 'fake' cheese in the green shaker) I prefer grating my own romano
(sometimes some onion added to the saute mixture is good, too.)

Start the water for the pasta. Meanwhile put some oil in a fry pan and start to saute the garlic and mushrooms. While the pasta is cooking, add the spinach to the mushrooms and heat through. When pasta is done, drain and return to pot. Add spinach/mushroom mixture and cheese to taste. YUM!
