Creamed-Spinach Gratin - 1 Point


Note: I like to double the spinach bc it’s a little too cheesy for my taste


Placing the creamed spinach in a casserole and topping it with sliced tomatoes gives the dish a bright, festive touch of red and green.


1 (10-ounce) bag fresh spinach

Cooking spray

2/3 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup tub-style light cream cheese

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 cup (1/4-inch-thick) sliced tomato

1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese



Preheat oven to 375°.


Remove large stems from spinach. Tear spinach into 1-inch pieces; place in a colander. Rinse spinach under cold water; drain. Set aside.


Place a large Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add spinach; cover and cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Add cream cheese, oregano, salt, and pepper. Uncover and cook an additional minute or until cream cheese melts. Spoon spinach mixture into a 1-quart gratin dish or shallow casserole coated with cooking spray. Arrange tomato slices in a single layer on top of spinach,and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
