Goat Cheese Creamed Spinach

goat cheese spinach 010

This cold weather has made me a little “eh” about salad.    I still want to eat those greens, though.

I have been making creamed spinach a lot for lunch this winter.   Homemade creamed spinach takes just a few minutes to make, it’s comforting, and it is a great way to eat many greens.   This pasta bowl of creamed spinach is an entire bag of spinach.  Spinach cooks down.

Creamed spinach with goat cheese is just the best.   It adds the perfect touch to this dish.


I love this spinach alone, but I also love to pair this with creamy polenta.  ( another dish that takes just 5 minutes to make)
