fresh baby spinach
Italian Cheese Mix
used: HEB brand mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, asiago, fontina and romano cheese blend
freshly ground black pepper
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet.
Stir in sliced green onions and saute over medium-high heat for about 1 minute.
Begin adding the spinach a handful at a time, stirring to wilt the spinach. Continue adding spinach and sautéing until all of the spinach has been used.
Place spinach mixture in a colander and press as much liquid out of the spinach as you can.
Place pan back on the heat and add remaining butter.
Stir in minced garlic and saute over medium heat for about 1 minute, making sure not to burn.
Immediately add the cream and nutmeg and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until the cream reduces into a thickened sauce, about 5 minutes.
Add spinach into the reduced cream and cook for an additional 3 minutes, stirring often.
Remove pan from heat and stir in cheese mixture.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
