Kristen here with a delicious recipe to share with you. On a healthy eating scale, I would say this recipe is about 7/10 for being healthy. I also think you could tweak it to make it healthier. I made it exactly like it appears below and 4/5 of my family loved it, which means 4/5 were eating spinach! Woo-hoo!
1 package spaghetti (cooked and drained) *I used whole wheat
2 10 oz. packs of frozen spinach thawed, chopped and dried
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 small onion finely chopped
1 1/2 cups Sour cream
2 cups Monterrey Jack Cheese
1 tablespoon Parmesan Cheese
2 eggs beaten
Mix all 9 ingredients in a bowl then transfer to a greased 9×13 dish. Bake uncovered at 350 for 1 hour. The original recipe called for adding 1 cup of Parmesan to the top of the dish and cook for another 5 minutes but we left it off since our kids always add cheese to pasta dishes.
We loved this and my husband wants it again next week. It is filling and a great way to sneak some veggies in too.
