Spinach Artichoke Gratin

This classic recipe is lightened with fat-free cottage cheese, but is still rich in flavor with parmesan, lemon juice, nutmeg, and green onions. Serve as a side dish as itself or as a dip for an enticing platter of fresh veggies and whole-grain crackers.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. fat-free cottage cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 5 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • ⅛ tsp. white pepper
  • ⅛ tsp. nutmeg
  • 20 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 10 oz. frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and drained

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375º F. Lightly spray a 9″x13″ baking dish with vegetable oil spray.
  2. In a food processor or blender, process the cottage cheese, eggs, 3 tablespoons Parmesan, garlic, lemon juice, pepper, and nutmeg until smooth.
  3. Squeeze the moisture from the spinach. Put the spinach in a large bowl.
  4. Stir in the cottage cheese mixture and green onions. Spread half the mixture in the baking dish.
  5. Cut the artichoke hearts in half. Pat dry with paper towels. Place in a single layer on the spinach mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Cover with the remaining spinach mixture.
  6. Bake until heated through and bubbly (25-30 minutes).
