COTTAGE CHEESE CREAMED SPINACH
Spinach is such a powerhouse vegetable, but that old steakhouse side of creamed spinach plays down the nutrition and plays up the fat. I have my own satisfying side to share with you that will give you some of the creaminess of that old favorite and some big flavor to make you not even miss all the fat and calories. Best of all, it couldn’t be faster or easier to get on your table for a busy weeknight side.
I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!
