Cooking Made Easy: Potato-Spinach-Mozzarella Casserole

potato spinach mozzarella basil casserole low-calorie healthy yummy easy under 500 kcal

As a kid I never ate spinach,... but not what you think! It wasn't me but my mother who had decided that it doesn't taste good so I was already a teen when I first tried spinach for myself. Over the years I really learned to love it (and to buy spinach leaves instead of creamed spinach!) and recently I have been using it a lot in my pasta recipes. Today however I was more in the mood for potatoes and I had some leftover mozzarella so I put everything in a healthy and low-calorie casserole:

Ingredients (serves 2):

500g organic potatoes
300g fresh or deep-frozen spinach
125g mozzarella
10g grated Parmesan
2 eggs
100 ml reduced fat cream 
1 small onion
fresh basil leaves
salt, pepper, nutmeg
olive oil

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
2. Wash the potatoes and cook them in salted water for about 15-20 minutes. (Large potatoes may take longer.)
3. Steam the spinach together with the diced onion. Flavor with salt and pepper.
4. Grease a medium sized baking dish with olive oil. Cut the cooked potatoes in slices and put half of them inside the baking dish. Put the steamed spinach on top and continue with the remaining potatoes. Cut the mozzarella in small slices and spread them on your potatoes.
5. Mix the eggs, cream, cut basil leaves, salt, pepper and nutmeg and pour it inside the baking dish.
6. Top it all off with some parmesan and bake for at least 30 minutes.
7. Enjoy! (Caution, the spinach gets super hot!)

  13. Absolutely yummy! If I were you, I'd get a steak of salmon and pan sear it to go together! It would work very well but otherwise this recipe is delicious by itself!
