How about something with spinach, like a good pasta dish? I love spinach but want to get more creative with it. In Germany, they eat spinach with eggs and potatoes, or with bratwursts. Those are both pretty good traditional German spinach dishes.

i don't think i have ever made spinach with pasta unless we are talking lasagna... you can layer some spinach in between layers with the ricotta cheese

as far as in a pasta... idk if that would work very well. the heat from the pasta will cause the spinach to wilt in no time. i love having it in omelettes tho, definitely a good way to use spinach

other than that, i typically just saute it for a minute or two then serve

Spinach goes extremely well with a butter/wine/garlic based sauce and very well with alfredo or carbonara sauce. If you are using fresh spinach, wilt it down in a saute pan, chop and add it at the very end, if you're using baby spinach which I often do, you don't really even need to worry about chopping it. If you are going with frozen spinach, just introduce it into the sauce once the spinach has defrosted and the end of cooking.

^ I meant using it in a sauce accompanied by pasta, something like this. I've used it in an alfredo sauce, but was curious what else was out there for options. A spinach omelet sounds very good also, will have to try.

I'm a little lost with that post. You meant that you wanted to use it in a sauce with pasta, but have done that already?

I'll post something a little later...

Yeah, I just wanted to see what other people had for ideas. I guess that's a better way of putting it. I was initially trying to be vague to leave the most room for creativity, because I've really got a thing for spinach right now. I'll eat it in just about anything you can come up with.

Battle spinach?
I know the pictures and plating suck, but as I said before, I am cooking for myself so there is no need to go nuts with presentation.

I didn't get pictures of the spinach dip that my girlfriend made that we were eating while I was preparing dinner... However here you go:

Baby spinach and goat cheese salad, topped with a country Dijon and balsamic vinaigrette



This is a spinach stuffed chicken cordon bleu served on top of a spinach potato pancake. The chicken was pounded thin, rolled with spinach, prosciutto, black forest ham, Swiss cheese and spices, and then rolled in a breadcrumb mixture that was made with breadcrumbs, feta cheese, salt, pepper, dill and a few other spices. The sauce, which is actually thicker than I wanted it to be but I ran out of cream, is a cognac mushroom cream sauce. The potato pancake is grated red potatoes, spinach, cheddar and cheddar jack cheeses, onion, garlic, spices, and egg and breadcrumbs to bind it. The pancake was pan fried and the chicken was baked.

The side is a baby creamed spinach stuffed portabella mushroom. The spinach was lightly wilted with garlic in butter then mixed with a variation of the mushroom cognac cream sauce. That was put into the portabella and baked as well. I topped it with a spinach and white truffle oil. Next time I make this I am going to use baby bellas or white stuffing mushrooms to control portion size.

Oh, the extra spinach and potato pancake mixture that I have I am going to either make a breakfast hash or hash browns with... I'll cover that this weekend.

Here's a interesting idea:

I wanted to do a marinate with simple stuff as I find I am always missing one key ingredient so I needed a fool proof meal when I am lazy . I always have an Italian salad dressing in my house and was wondering what could I do with that and a boneless chicken breast. There are some obvious answers but curious to see what you can come up with.
