Yield:
4 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pound baby spinach
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm milk
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
Directions
  • Cook spinach in 1 inch of boiling salted water in a large pot, covered, stirring once or twice, until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold running water until cool. Squeeze small handfuls of spinach to remove as much moisture as possible, then coarsely chop.

  • Cook onion in butter in a small heavy saucepan over moderately low heat, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes. Whisk in flour and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add warm milk and simmer, whisking, 3 to 4 minutes. Whisk in Parmesan, salt, nutmeg, and pepper to taste. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until heated through.
