  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  3. 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  4. 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  5. 5 (9-ounce) bags fresh spinach
  6. 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
  7. 1⁄2 cup heavy whipping cream
  8. 2 teaspoons salt
  9. 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  10. 1 1⁄2 cups grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, combine olive oil and butter. Cook over medium heat until butter has melted. Add onion and garlic. Cook until onion begins to be translucent, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high. Working in batches, add spinach to pan. Cook, stirring often, until spinach has wilted, 3 to 4 minutes per batch. Repeat process with remaining spinach, cooking until all spinach is wilted, stirring often. Cook for 3 to 4 additional minutes to reduce liquid, stirring often.

  5. Add 1 1⁄2 cups mozzarella and 1 cup Parmesan, stirring well. Spoon into prepared dish.
  6. Cover, and bake for 15 minutes. Remove cover, and spread remaining 1⁄2 cup mozzarella and remaining 1⁄2 cup Parmesan over top. Bake until cheese is golden brown, approximately 10 minutes.
