    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Cuisine at Home. I can't abide frozen spinach, so baby spinach leaves fit the role nicely. Cut down on the fat content by using lower fat milk instead of cream. A brief history of boursin, compliments of www.cheese.com: "Boursin is a modern, creamy, fresh cheese of cylindrical shape without rind. It is made with garlic and herbs or even black pepper. It is a soft industrial cheese with no affinage (maturity/aging process). The cheese was founded by Monsier Boursin in 1957. It has a rich, sweet flavor with a hint of acidity." Update: I discovered recently that there is a posted boursin cheese recipe on this site. I have not tried it.

    2. 2
      Butter a shallow baking dish and set aside.

      Prepare the sauce first by sauteing the onion in butter over medium heat. Cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add flour and stir well to coat. Cook about 1 minute.
    5. 5
      Gradually whisk in the milk and whipping cream, stirring the mixture constantly to break up any lumps. Simmer sauce for 1 minute. DO NOT burn.
    6. 6
      Next stir in the boursin cheese a little bit at a time, until melted and smooth. Remove the pan from the heat.
    7. 7
      Now add the spinach, Parmesan cheese, lemon zest and seasonings. Transfer the spinach mixture to the prepared baking dish.
    8. 8
      Toss together the topping ingredients. Add the topping to the spinach mixture and pat down with your hands.
    9. 9
      Place the dish on a baking sheet and bake until crumbs are golden and saucy bubbly; approximately 20-25 minutes.
    10. 10
      NOTE: Casserole can be prepared up through Step #8, covered with foil and chilled for baking at a later time.

      This is becoming a holiday favorite for my family. I use the Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges, which melt nicely. Last night, substituted swiss chard whch has more body than spinach and it was great!

      This was absolutely delicious! I used the reduced fat Boursin, which wasn't the same full flavor, but it still made a fabulous spinach dish. It was on sale at the time, but next time I'll splurge, bc I LOVE Boursin Cheese! I also used fresh spinach as you suggested. I was a good choice, very simple and a great compliment to any meal.
