When I saw this recipe for Creamed Spinach Gratin on Christa's Kitchen Creations, I couldn't wait to try it. It looked so simple, yet delicious - and it was!
- 1 (10-ounce) bag fresh spinach
- Cooking spray
- 2/3 cup chopped onion
- 1/4 cup tub-style light cream cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup (1/4-inch-thick) sliced tomato
- 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375°.
Remove large stems from spinach. Tear spinach into 1-inch pieces; place in a colander. Rinse spinach under cold water; drain. Set aside.
Place a large Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add spinach; cover and cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Add cream cheese, oregano, salt, and pepper. Uncover and cook an additional minute or until cream cheese melts.
Spoon spinach mixture into a 1-quart gratin dish or shallow casserole coated with cooking spray. Arrange tomato slices in a single layer on top of spinach,and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
