Spinach-Kale Bake

Submitted by: ND774748

Introduction

This is my take on a deli sandwich item. The mixture can be eaten alone, with pasta or on a sandwich roll. This is my take on a deli sandwich item. The mixture can be eaten alone, with pasta or on a sandwich roll.

Ingredients

    Spinach, frozen, 1-16 oz. bag
    Kale, frozen, 1-16 oz. bag
    Olive Oil, .25 cup
    *Flour, white, .25 cup
    Kirkland Signature Pure Sea Salt Fine Grain, 0.5 tsp
    Onions, raw, 2 large
    Garlic, 6 cloves
    Del Monte Diced Tomatoes, 1-15 oz. can
    Cabot Vermont 75% Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese, 8 oz.
    Parmigiano Reggiano (grated), 6 tbsp
    Nutmeg, ground, .25 tsp
    Baking dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

Tips

Three possible variations: 1. Butter can be substituted for olive oil. 2. For additional creaminess, 4 oz. cream cheese could be added with the cheddar cheese. 3. Mixture could be topped with Swiss cheese. Please note, nutritional data does not include these changes.


Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Thaw and squeeze water from kale and spinach. Set aside. Grate cheddar and parmigianno cheeses; keep separated. Finely chop onions and mince garlic. Keep separeted, and set aside. Drain excess liquid, if any, from cottage cheese. Set aside. Add 1T olive oil to pan. Saute onions over medium-high heat until onions are translucent, approximately 2-3 minutes. Add garlic, and cook for an additional minute. Remove onions and garlic from the pan; they can be added to the spinach bowl. Add remaining oil and flour to pan. Stir constantly to form a roue. The darkness of the roue is a matter of preference. A darker roue will add a nutty flavor; while a lighter color will not impact flavor. Whatever your preference, cook flour mixture at least 3 minutes to remove the taste of the flour. Add salt, nutmeg and grated cheddar to pan. Once combined, add canned tomatoes, spinach, cottage cheese, onions and garlic. Pour into prepared baking dish, and top with parmesan. Bake 30 minutes, until parmesan is a melted and browned. Remove from oven, and let it rest for a few moments before dividing into 12 portions. Enjoy!
