Instructions

Spinach And Egg Noodle Casserole Recipe Directions

  • Microwave the spinach according to box instructions and boil a large pot of water for the noodles.
  • Meanwhile, saute the onion and garlic with the olive oil.
  • When spinach is done you have to drain it. I don't have a cheesecloth but if you do, squeeze all the water out. If you are like me - use your hands.
  • Add the spinach to the onions and garlic. Add sliced cherry tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.
  • Pour entire mixture into the drained egg noodles and stir. Add your shredded mozzarella cheese and a handful of Parmesan cheese. Stir once more. Salt and pepper.
  • Use the pan you just took the onions and spinach out of and melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and then the milk. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.  Cook until it thickens - around 5 minutes.
  • In a bowl whisk the egg yolks and then pour some of the butter mixture into the bowl to temper the eggs. Then add eggs into the pan and cook for a few more minutes.
  • Turn on your boiler.
  • Add the butter mixture to your pasta and stir together. Place in pan.
  • Top with panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese evenly. Place in broiler for a few minutes. Keep an eye that you don't burn the panko breadcrumbs.
  • When you feel good about your browning, take the dish out and serve! The kids LOVED it!
