Ingredients

Cooking spray
1/2 cup minced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
1/2 cup (4 ounces) tub-style light cream cheese
3 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons 1% low-fat milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 (6-ounce) flounder fillets

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add spinach, and cook 1 minute.

3. Turn heat to low; add cream cheese and next 5 ingredients. Stir well; remove from heat.

4. Divide spinach mixture among fillets, spreading evenly over each and leaving a 1/4-inch margin around edges.

5. Roll up each fillet, jelly roll fashion, starting with tail end, and secure with wooden picks.

6. Place fish in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 to 22 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve immediately.
