New Year, New Digs, New Food

So I’m finally all moved in to my new apartment! It’s pretty exciting to be this close to downtown Madison, WI (a great city if you didn’t already know). I’m definitely feeling a new wave of inspiration and generally more at ease, especially after the hectic holidays. As I was going through the pictures on my thumb drive, I found some of a spinach casserole I made shortly before the year was over, and I can’t believe I completely forgot about it! Not only was this casserole crazy easy to make (like most of the things I choose to make), but I ate practically the whole thing in one night. In fact, I’m sure if I didn’t have to share it I probably would have. Next time I’ll be making a double batch for sure!

I got the recipe from What’s Cooking With Mary, and the original can be found here.

 Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups cottage cheese (I used nonfat)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbs flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 3 Tbs cold butter, cut into small cubes (I used unsalted)
  • ¼ lb extra sharp cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 1lb frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed of liquid

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350* and combine all ingredients and mix well.
  • Pour into a casserole dish (sprayed with cooking spray).
  • Bake for 1 hour or until golden brown.

And there you have it! Super super simple, the only thing I’d change is I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage and it was amazing.
Bon Appetit!
