  • Set oven to 375 degrees.
  • Lightly butter a 9-inch baking dish (or similar size oval casserole dish).
  • Hand-squeeze the spinach as dry as possible.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a heavy medium skillet over medium heat; add in the spinach and saute for about 3 minutes.
  • Season spinach with salt and pepper.
  • Spread the spinach evenly into the prepared baking dish.
  • Melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat; add in flour and whisk for 2 minutes (do not allow the mixture to turn brown).
  • Gradually add in the whipping cream and milk whisking until the mixture is smooth; cook until the sauce is thick, whisking frequently (about 5-6 minutes).
  • Season sauce with nutmeg and cayenne, then add/mix in about 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese (or use any kind of cheese desired).
  • Spoon the sauce over the spinach, then sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese over the sauce (can use more if desired).
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
