Creamed Spinach Phyllo Cups

Turn a beloved side dish into a cute and savory appetizer. Frozen phyllo shells speed prep time, as does bagged baby spinach (rather than frozen). Toasting the phyllo cups keeps them crisp longer after being filled.

  • Yield: Serves 10 (serving size: 3 filled cups)

Ingredients

  • 30 mini phyllo shells (such as Athens)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
  • 2 (6-ounce) bags baby spinach
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 3 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, very thinly shaved

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Arrange phyllo shells in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Lightly coat shells with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 4 minutes or until lightly browned and very crisp.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add garlic; cook 1 minute or until fragrant but not browned, stirring frequently. Coarsely chop 1 bag of spinach. Add chopped spinach to pan; cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, tossing frequently. Chop remaining spinach; add to wilted spinach in pan. Cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, tossing frequently. Sprinkle spinach mixture with salt; toss well. Stir in cream and cream cheese; cook 1 minute or until cheese melts and sauce is thoroughly heated. Remove pan from heat.

4. Spoon about 1 tablespoon spinach mixture into each shell. Top evenly with Parmigiano-Reggiano.
