For example, you can add shrimp or Serrano ham if you´d like, or choose bacon which gives a delicious flavor to the recipe.

Nevertheless, if you choose to use one of these variations, always be careful with the amount of salt used, because some of these ingredients are salty.

How to prepare spinach in béchamel


Cut the leaves off of the spinach stem because they are the only part we will use; wash them and drain them.


In a frying pan, heat the oil on medium heat, and when it is hot, sauté the chopped garlic and then add the spinach; sauté for 1 or 2 minutes. Add salt as desired.


Pre-heat the oven to 180º C and in the meantime add some béchamel sauce to a tray or an ovenproof bowl.


Spread the spinach around the whole container and then cover it with the rest of the béchamel sauce.


Lastly, add the grated Parmesan cheese and bake for 10 or 15 minutes.
