  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • ½ oz butter
  • 1 pinch nutmeg optional
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • If you’re using pre-washed baby spinach pass directly to the next step.
  • Otherwise thoroughly wash spinach leaves under cold running water, cut off or pinch off the stems.
  • In a large skillet pan add a splash of olive oil, a pinch of pepperoncino (chili flakes) and top with spinach.
  • Cover with a lid to create steam. Cook spinach for a few minutes with a steam stirring from time to time.
  • In the meantime prepare the sauce.

  • Turn off the heat, add butter, nutmeg and Parmesan cheese.
  • Grease a baking dish with butter and spread evenly cooked spinach.
  • Spoon out two holes in spinach and break an egg in each. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Top with Parmesan cream sauce and more Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake in a preheated to 375F oven for 15-20 minutes until light golden brown.
