Spinach and Mushroom Casserole
6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature, divided
3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms, any variety
1 large clove garlic, minced
450g frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
200g ounces Organic cream cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 Tbsp. melted butter combined with 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a shallow one-quart baking dish.
Melt two tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet. Add mushrooms and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until slightly softened. Add garlic and continue cooking until mushrooms are limp and have given up most of their moisture. Combine cooked mushrooms, spinach, cream cheese and remaining butter in a bowl and blend well with a wooden spoon or electric mixer. Spread mixture into prepared dish and sprinkle with crumb topping. (Dish can be prepared to this point and stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Restore to room temperature before baking.) Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until nicely browned and heated through.
