This is a creation of mine, and was delicious! You could use a different cheese, but I liked the flavors of this combination...if you don't care for mushrooms, you could always leave them out...so creamy good!

Enjoy!

How to Make Tasty Creamed Spinach & Mushrooms - Cassies

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, then add the spinach, mushrooms and garlic. Saute for about 5 minutes, or until garlic and mushrooms are cooked through, stirring frequently.

    Drain in strainer,leave set to cool, while you make the white sauce.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    In the same skillet that's been rinsed, melt butter over medium heat. Once melted whisk in flour and continue to cook for about 1 minute.

    Using a whisk, I gradually add the milk, and whisk till you see no lumps. Stir in the cream and seasonings and continue cooking until thickened. Stir in the cheeses and continue stirring until melted. Set aside.
  3. With clean hands...lightly pushed down on the spinach - mushroom mixture, carefully pressing out as much liquid as you can. Once you finish, add the spinach to the cream sauce and mix well.
  4. Spray a small casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the spinach mixture into the dish and smooth out evenly. I then added a few pieces of Gouda to the top and sprinkled a little more Parmesan. That's up to you...you could even add some buttered bread crumbs.

    Place in preheated oven and bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until bubbly and starting to brown.
  5. Enjoy...my family loved it...
