Cheesy Creamy Spinach --Lizzy Original

So this recipe came about when I was making spinach stuffed chicken and I had a good cup and a half of spinach left. My boyfriend said he loved creamed spinach, and it made me think, well so do what can I do about it? Make a creamed spinach that is point-friendly, of course!!

Cheesy Creamy Spinach

*2 blocks of spinach, thawed and strained
* 1 small can mushrooms
* 1/2 cup lowfat ricotta
* 1/2 cup low fat parmesan cheese, divided into 1/4 c.
* 2 laughing cow wedges (I use 1 swiss and 1 mozzarella, sundried tomato basil)
* 1 lite string cheese
* Salt and pepper to taste

1. Add mushrooms to spinach and stir.

2. Add 1/4 c. of the parm, ricotta, laughing cow, salt and pepper. Stir.

3. Check out this fun trick..put your string cheese in a blender, and do a quick shred. (THIS IS GREAT FOR ALL RECIPES NEEDING A KICK!)

4. Viola! Shredded string cheese..easier for melting, etc. Now add that to the spinach mixture.

5. Make sure everything is blended nicely and flatten top.

6. Top with remaining 1/4 cup parm.

7. Bake in 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!
