This is a garlic and spinach spread that will please everyone! It is especially yummy on hot slices of a rye bread.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 8 ounces fresh baby spinach
- 1 whole head garlic, peeled
- 1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Wrap garlic cloves in aluminum foil, and bake for 45 minutes, or until soft.
Bring 3 inches of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add spinach, cover, and cook for about 2 minutes, just until wilted and soggy. Remove from heat and drain.
Mix the garlic, spinach, olive oil, and Romano cheese. In small batches, use a food processor to process to your desired consistency. Transfer to a serving dish.
