French in a Flash: Pistou-Crumbed Creamed Spinach Recipe

Serves: 12 Save

Ingredients (11)

  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup baguette crumbs
  • 6 pounds thawed frozen spinach, wrung of any excess moisture
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper
  • Note To make baguette crumbs, take what's left of a day-old baguette and whirl it around in the food processor until you have fine, fluffy rubble. You can use them immediately, or store them in the freezer. I always have a bag frozen and ready for use.
