If you have trouble coaxing children to eat spinach, this fast-to-fix dish might be the solution. The cheese sauce works for me every time!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • Dash nutmeg
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • Dash white pepper
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar or shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 pound cod, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, melt butter. Stir in the flour, bouillon, nutmeg, cayenne and white pepper until smooth. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the cheddar cheese until melted; set aside.
  2. Place spinach in an ungreased 8-in. square baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Arrange fish on spinach; sprinkle with salt. Spoon sauce over top.
