Spinach Mixture wwpp=3 pt

This is my all time favorite, mash of mix. My favorite spinach ( I really am digging the fresh spinach), garlic, minced garlic, and salt and pepper to taste.

This can be used in so many ways. Today I took it and split it in to 3 one cup containers. Each container was worth 3 points. I am figuring that 3 points is worth est about 120 calories. I actually could have put in another cup of spinach.

Spinach Mixture   wwpp=3


3 cups of fresh spinach (cut it up into small, small pieces)

1 small onion ( smaller than diced, not minced)

6 cloves of garlic (smaller than diced, kinda minced)

1 container of ricotta - part skim ( you could probably lower your ww points if you used reduced fat)


1) prep all your ingredients and mix together...

I took this mixture and divided it into 3 servings.
Now at this point you can make anything your imagination desires.

Here are a few of the things you can make with this. I will try to post them when I try them. So you can see what they look like.

Stuffed Shell > take the mixture and add an egg and stuff your cooked shells, cover with sauce.

Lasagna > could be used with an egg mixed in as the filling in lasagna

Pizza > a layer of cream cheese on the crust then this mixture with cheese on top.

Baked Ziti > mix this in with an egg and a jar of sauce and the penne noodles. Sprinkle with cheese.

Crescent Rolls > put inside the crescent like a little popover.

Stromboli > Mix with an egg and spread on to a flat squared piece of pizza dough and then put a layer of pepperoni and roll up.

Wonton Cups > mix with an egg and fill cups, top with cheese. (you could also add a little cooked Italian sausage.)

Spaghetti > saute a bit of bacon, put in spinach mix and add spaghetti.

Raviolis> with won, fill middle of one wonton, put another on top. Seal and boil. Top with some tomato sauce.

Tomatoes, zucchinis, squash, mushrooms> take mixture and mix with an egg and fill and roast.

The next recipe of a zucchini tart I will use this mixture. Be sure to check it out.

So for now..

Eat well. Experiment with a recipe.. make it your own.
