Ingredients

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


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.


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.

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
