Ingredients Nutrition

  • 18 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 (32 ounce) container ricotta cheese
  • 1 (5 ounce) package Baby Spinach (6 cups)
  • kosher salt and black pepper

  1. In a medium bowl, mix the squash and nutmeg. In a second bowl, combine the ricotta, spinach, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
