    Default Spinach Casserole

    3 boxes frozen chopped spinach (thawed and all the water squeezed out.)
    4 lg eggs
    5 Tbl flour
    16 Oz cottage cheese (I use small curd)
    1 pkg 16 oz shredded cheddar cheese

    Mix eggs and flour until thoroughly mixed
    Mix all ingredients together reserving enough cheese to top the casserole about 1 1/2 c...more if you like a cheesy top.
    Put into 2 qt casserole and bake at 350* for 45 minutes or until cheese on top in bubbly and starting to brown on the edges.

    You can use Ricotta cheese in place of the cottage cheese. They cost about the same, and the ricotta is smooth and creamy.

    I'm always on the lookout for veggie recipes and this one seems to be a good one. Could be a nice lunch dish also.

    It sounds great but I was wondering for those of us watching our fat intake if we could do some substituting - egg whites, fat free cottage cheese, half the cheese or maybe some lowfat mixed in with the full fat cheese? What do you think, Marilyn? I'd love to try this since we like spinach and it's a healthy green. My favorite way to eat it is fresh in salads but I also would love this. I remember my friend's mother made something super simple that was delicious. She cooked frozen spinach and then melted a package of that onion and chive cream cheese in the hot spinach. That's all it was and it was delicious. Not something Joe and I could eat on a regular basis though. Unfortunately, it's not as easy to find low fat items in the markets here in the Netherlands. They have some but not to the extent we have them in the states.

    Rebecca, I don't see any reason why you could not substitute for lower fat/cholesterol. You could probably use egg beaters instead of whole eggs. Fat free cottage cheese would probably work just fine. You could probably fore go the cheese as topping for something else that would go well. Try it out...what do you have to lose?

    I'll see what I can find that I can substitute. If no, I'll try it when I get back to the states. Thanks for the recipe.
