Healthy Creamed Spinach

Creamed spinach healthy?

You betcha.

I forgot to post the recipe so here it is. Make this, please. It is soooooo good.

If you want a more souffled texture to it, beat 1/2 cup Egg Beaters (or 2 eggs) into it and bake in a casserole pan for 20 minutes instead of simmering.

Healthy Creamed Spinach
serves 4
* 1 box frozen leaf spinach, (I like Birdseye, there are no stems)
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1/2 small onion, chopped
* 1 large clove of garlic, minced
* 5 Cremini mushrooms, sliced
* 1/4 cup sherry or brandy
* 1 cup fat-free half and half
* 1 oz fat-free cream cheese
* 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
* 1 teaspoon Frank's hot sauce
* pinch freshly grated nutmeg
* Salt & pepper to taste (I like lots of pepper with this)

1. Heat oil in non-stick pan. Add onions & garlic and saute until tender. Add mushrooms and cook another 5 minutes.

2. Add sherry and cook off, when liquid is gone add the spinach, half and half, cream cheese and parmesan. Stir to mix well.

3. Add hot sauce, nutmeg and salt and pepper. Taste and adjust.

4. Simmer on low for 15 minutes, uncovered. Serve.
