Ingredients

  • 30 Ounces frozen spinach
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 Cup shallots, finely chopped

  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 Teaspoon red pepper flakes

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Thaw the spinach according to package directions. Wring out the spinach with a clean tea towel until dry.

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots, and cook for 3-5 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds. Add the thawed spinach, cream cheese, salt, red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.
