Ina Garten's Creamed Spinach Gratin. Michelle's notes: made for Thanksgiving 2015. YUM. I halved the recipe since there were so many sides already, but this was a winner. Might have used a little more cheese than was strictly called for, and I used grated parmesan instead of freshly-grated parm, but I will definitely make this again!
Want an amazing and healthy side dish? Marinate sliced tomatoes with balsamic vinegar for 4-6 hours. Bake at 350 for about 7 minutes or a little tender. Meanwhile, sauté spinach and garlic with a dash of salt and lemon juice. Put spinach on top of tomatoes and sprinkle with low fat cheese of your choice (I chose Italian blend) and broil til cheese is golden!
