Ingredients

  • 2 bunches green onions chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 20 ounces chopped frozen spinach thawed
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 8 ounces ricotta cheese divided use
  • 3 eggs divided use
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 6 ounces Monterey Jack cheese grated, divided use
  • 1 cup Panko
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter melted (½ stick)

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepot. Once the oil is hot, sauté the chopped green onions in the oil, until the onions are soft and starting to brown, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add the sliced mushrooms, and cook until the mushrooms have released their liquid and the liquid has cooked off, about 7-10 minutes.
  3. Stir in the spinach, and cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Season the mixture with the garlic powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and oregano. Remove from heat.
  5. Stir in 4 ounces of ricotta, 2 eggs, cream cheese, and 1/3 of the grated Monterey Jack cheese.
  6. Grease a 9x9-inch casserole dish with butter or non-stick spray. Spoon the spinach mixture into the prepared casserole dish, and smooth out the top so it isn’t lumpy.
  7. In a separate medium bowl, combine remaining egg with remaining 4 ounces ricotta, and remaining grated Monterey Jack cheese. Spread the cheese mixture over the top of the spinach mixture.
  8. Sprinkle the Panko bread crumbs over the top of the cheese mixture, and drizzle with melted butter.
  9. Bake at 350º F for 30-40 minutes or until casserole is browned, puffed, and bubbling.
