Casserole with Spinach and Minced Meat

Attention Spinach Lovers! Today we made a delicious oven dish with spinach and minced meat. I got the recipe for this delicious casserole from my sister-in-law. She has her grandmother's recipe and regularly makes this spinach dish for my brother.

The dish is made according to the family recipe with spinach, mushrooms, minced meat, slavink, macaroni and cheese sauce. I have slightly modified the original recipe to reduce the amount of carbohydrates. For example, I replaced the macaroni with cauliflower rice and the cheese sauce was not thickened with cornflour, but thickened with cooking cream, cream cheese and grated cheese.

Because of these small adjustments, the casserole contains more vegetables and fewer carbohydrates. For example, a serving contains only 11.6 g of carbohydrates and no less than 300 g of vegetables. Yesterday we all tested the low-carb version and it was a success. Everyone has enjoyed it.

Tips: With this recipe you can make a delicious casserole with spinach for four to five people. You can serve a portion of the dish as a main course at dinner. Serve the dish with a fresh salad or a simple salad mix. You can keep the oven dish in the fridge for up to 2 days after preparation and reheat it later in the oven.

Place the dish in the oven at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes. I hope you like it! Check out our other recipes for more inspiration.
