Simply Scrumptious Spinach
1 - 10 oz package chopped frozen spinach (or a larger bag, see above)
1/2 cup toasted pecan pieces (lightly toast in oven or on stove)
6 to 8 oz sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup minced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced, pressed, or smashed
1/4 to 1/2 cup grated cheese - at least some of it should be a hard
cheese like Parmesan
1 cup light ricotta cheese
Dry white wine - a little to deglaze and 1 to 2 Tbsp more
1/2 tsp black pepper
Salt to taste
A little nutmeg
Put pecans in food processor. Thaw and squeeze liquid out of the
spinach, then add that in, too.
Cook onion in skillet in a little oil until beginning to soften.
Add mushrooms, and cook on medium high until most of the water is out of
them and mushrooms are browning.
Deglaze the pan with white wine.
Add garlic and seasonings and cook for a minute or so.
Add the contents of the pan and cheeses to the food processor and process.
If there isn't enough liquid for the processor to do its thing (you
hope), add the wine, a tablespoon at a time.
Now all that remains is to heat it through. Put it in a bowl or small
casserole dish and either heat it in the microwave for a few minutes, or
put in the oven at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes or until the top browns.
