You've got to try what we had for dinner last night...

Greek-style Baked Spinach & Shrimp
12 oz. of spinach w/ stems removed
2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
2 green onions, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can of diced tomatoes, drained
4 oz. of crumbled feta cheese
3/4 lb. of medium-large shelled & deveined shrimp
salt & pepper to taste
hot steamed rice

Wash the spinach, but do not drain. Place in a large pot & cover & steam for about 5 minutes until completely wilted, stirring occassionally. Drain well by pressing out excess water with a spatula.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 1.5-quart casserole dish.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions & garlic & saute for about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, salt & pepper and then spinach and half of the feta cheese.

Remove from heat & stir in the shrimp. Transfer to the casserole dish. Crumble the remaining feta on top. (I also added some bread crumbs to the top)

Bake for about 30 minutes, until the shrimp are white & firm.
Serve over hot rice.

Hope you love it as much as we did!
