“I love this recipe because it’s an easy make-ahead side dish,” comments Clark. “Make it one to two days in advance, then pop it in the oven on the day you plan to serve it,” she continues, noting that you should be sure to use panko bread crumbs for an extra crispy topping.

Instructions:

1. First, preheat the oven to 450°F. Next, you’ll add the olive oil, minced garlic and spinach to a large sauté pan. On medium-high heat, sauté the spinach just until wilted (about 5 minutes), stirring constantly. To prevent a runny casserole, drain off (or pat with a paper towel) any liquid that may have occurred due to the sauté method.

2. Remove the pan from heat and add cheese, cream, pepper and salt. Stir. Taste for flavor and add more salt and pepper if desired.

3. Pour the mixture into a 1.5-quart baking dish and sprinkle the panko breadcrumbs on top. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes, or until bubbly and breadcrumbs are golden brown. Use the broiler to further brown the breadcrumbs if desired.
