I need spinach recipes!
 
I have an almost full bag of baby spinach that expires today. I need to fidn a recipe that I can use a lot of spinach and cook it...I don't wnat to make a salad b/c it's just not fresh enough for me to eat raw. It's still good but I'm picky about my greens :giggle:. Any ideas?

Why not saute in olive oil and garlic?

If you don't like it straight up like that, you could saute, drain, make a basic white sauce, blend, and voila, creamed spinach.

Ooh, good idea. I love creamed spinach!

I'm not sure how this would work since this recipe usually calls for frozen spinach -- I'd think it'd be fine once the fresh spinach cooks down.

Basically you just cook the spinach, then at the end add some olive oil, bread crumbs, and garlic powder (NOT garlic salt). Add to taste.

My mom made it all the time when I was growing up, and I still make it. I think we did it with fresh spinach a few times, too. It's really yummy!

I have one that is yummy and easy. Put spinach in bowl type glass dish. Put about 10 grape tomatoes and a couple of shakes of hot sauce(I LOVE Frank's). toss, cover with lid and microwave for a few minutes, check and mix gently again. You just want the spinach to wilt and tomatoes to burst. Cover with a sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese and let melt. It is so easy and delicious.

Yummy..I LOVE spinach! I like to add it to pasta sauces, any type of lasagna, straight up (raw or sauteed) but my favorite spinach dish is Spanakopita

I like to make spinach pesto. Just make pesto as normal But substitute spinach for the basil. Pesto freezes very easily or you can throw it in alfredo sauce... mix it with goat cheese for a spread on toast.... lots of yummy options!

you could always just satuee/steam it, and throw it in the freezer
