    Parmesan Spinach Cakes

    If you like spinach-cheese pie, try these simple but elegant-looking little spinach cakes.

    Ingredients

    • 12 ounces fresh spinach
    • 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese or low-fat cottage cheese
    • 1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish
    • 2 large eggs, beaten
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

    Instructions

    Step 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F.
    Step 2
    Pulse spinach in three batches in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add ricotta (or cottage cheese), Parmesan, eggs, garlic, salt and pepper; stir to combine.
    Step 3
    Coat 8 cups of the muffin pan with cooking spray. Divide the spinach mixture among the 8 cups (they will be very full).
    Step 4
    Bake the spinach cakes until set, about 20 minutes. Let stand in the pan for 5 minutes. Loosen the edges with a knife and turn out onto a clean cutting board or large plate. Serve warm, sprinkled with more Parmesan, if desired.
