Parmesan Spinach

10 oz. fresh, washed spinach
2 T freshly grated Parmesan cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Place spinach in large saucepan or microwave-proof bowl. Cover and cook on medium for 2-3 minutes or until spinach is wilted. If using microwave, cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 3 minutes.

Place spinach in serving dish and add Parmesan, salt, and pepper to taste. Toss well.

Makes 2 servings.

Garlic Cheese Chicken Roll Ups

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup seasoned, dried breadcrumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 7 oz. pkg. of garlic-cheese spread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Pound chicken breasts until thinned out. In a shallow dish or bowl mix together bread crumbs and cheese (I used less than 1 cup of breadcrumbs and had plenty). Dip one side of each breast into melted butter or margarine, then into crumb/cheese mixture. Place a tablespoon of cheese spread at one end of each chicken breast, on the side of the breast not dipped in the mixture. Roll up each breast and secure with toothpicks.

Place rollups in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish and drizzle any remaining butter or margarine over all. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until cooked through and juices run clear.
