Why I Love This Recipe

I don't recall where I got this recipe, and I sadly failed to make a note of credit. I wish I could remember so I could thank them for introducing me to such a fab dish! Spinach, pasta, and cheese. What more could you ask for?? Yum.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 10 ounce box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
½ sweet onion, grated
½ box macaroni noodles
2-3 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon of sifted flour
1 ½ to 2 cups of milk
Fresh ground black pepper


Directions

Spinach Mac!


1 10 ounce box frozen chopped spinach, thawed


½ sweet onion, grated


Microwave or boil these together for a couple of minutes, just to meld the flavors. Use a strainer and the back of a spoon to press out excess liquid.


Boil ½ box macaroni noodles to package directions.


Make a white sauce:


Melt 2-3 tablespoons of butter


whisk in 1 tablespoon of sifted flour


1 ½ to 2 cups of milk


Fresh ground black pepper


Stir the spinach/onion into the white sauce, stir together with noodles, then stir in any kind of grated cheese (I've used about ½ cup each of Parmesan, mozzarella, crumbled feta and about 1 cup Monterey jack. Gruyere is also wonderful. White Cheddar. You can just go crazy with cheeses on this one.)


Pour into a greased casserole, sprinkle grated jack on top, bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes, until bubbly and the top starts to brown.

Questions, Comments & Reviews


Good morning Nina,
Hope the weather is just as beautiful in Graham as it is here (Winneka, California). I added your recipe to my cookbook, but if we make it I can only eat a small amount of it, since I'm not suppose to eat too much spinach. Thanks again for sharing this recipe.

Have a Super Day!

Best Regards,
Axel
