Easy-Cheesy Spinach Casserole

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Geniale Genie

It doesn't get much easier than this... no sautéing and hardly any chopping - everything is cooked in one dish before putting in the oven (I even bake it in my toaster over). A great way to use up spinach that's been in the fridge for a while. Use whole-wheat pasta for extra nutrients. You could probably sub rice for the pasta. Add a dash of hot sauce to jazz it up a bit. Measurements and cooking times are approximate.

This was very bland and not worth the time it took to make. Did not even keep the recipe to spice up.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine broth, spinach (don't bother chopping) and garlic in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes until spinach is wilted. Cream using a stick blender.
  3. Bring back a boil, add pasta, and simmer until pasta is al dente.
  4. Dilute starch in an equal amount of cold water. Stir into pot along with cream cheese. Simmer until thickened; remove from heat.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs together. Stirring constantly, add several spoonfuls of the mix to the eggs (to warm them up). Stir into remaining pasta & sauce mix. Pour into an oven-safe dish (a 9-inch pie plate is the perfect size).
  6. Mix breadcrumbs with grated cheese and sprinkle over top. Bake 10 approximately 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Turn oven to broil and cook until cheese turns golden - watch constantly.
