LADYBIRD JOHNSON'S SPINACH SIDE DISH RECIPE

Cook 3 lb. washed and drained spinach til it wilts and chop coarsely (you can substitute 2 pkg. frozen spinach). Add 6 T. grated Parmesan cheese, 6 T. minced onion, 6 T. light cream or half and half, 4 T. melted butter or margarine and salt and pepper to taste. Place in a shallow, buttered (1 1/2-2 quart) baking dish and sprinkle with 1/2 c. cracker crumbs which have been mixed with 1 T. melted butter. Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 10-15 minutes or til golden and lightly crusted. Saltine crackers have a lot of salt so be careful when salting the dish.
(serves 4-6)
