INGREDIENTS
  • 1 10 ounce box frozen chopped spinach, thawed

  • 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
  1. Spinach Mac!
  2. 1 10 ounce box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  3. ½ sweet onion, grated
  4. 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.
  5. Boil ½ box macaroni noodles to package directions.
  6. Make a white sauce:
  7. Melt 2-3 tablespoons of butter
  8. whisk in 1 tablespoon of sifted flour
  9. 1 ½ to 2 cups of milk
  10. Fresh ground black pepper
  11. 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.)
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
