1 pound baby spinach, washed

1 teaspoon olive oil 

1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped 

2 cloves garlic, finely diced 

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter 

1/4 cup all-purpose flour 

1 1/2 cups milk 

3/4 cup grated Parmesan

Pinch nutmeg 


  1. In batches, saute the spinach in a large saute pan over high heat until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic; cook until translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the butter and flour; cook for 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk and bring to a boil (it will thicken as comes to a boil). Turn off the heat and stir in the Parmesan, nutmeg and sauteed spinach.
  3. Serve immediately or hold in a low oven.
