 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   10       oz           Spinach, chopped
                         -(frozen or fresh)
    2       T            Butter (or margarine)
    1       sm           Onion, chopped
                         Yogurt, plain
                         -(between 1-2 C)
    2       T            Flour
                         Cheddar or parmesan cheese
                         -(between 1-2 C), grated
                         Salt
                         Pepper
 
   Rinse and chop the spinach.  Place the chopped spinach in a heavy skillet,
   cover, and steam until wilted, stirring occasionally.  There is no need to
   add water other than what clings to the leaves from washing. (If you are
   using frozen spinach, place over low or medium heat to thaw and allow
   excess water to evaporate.) Transfer to small bowl.
   
   In a skillet, melt the butter (or margarine).  Add the onion and cook until
   soft.  Add the flour and stir for 1 minute over medium heat.  Season the
   mixture to taste with salt and pepper, and then gradually whisk in the
   yogurt.
   
   Add the spinach and turn to coat the leaves.  Remove from heat and blend in
   the cheese.  Pour into a greased 8x4-inch loaf pan, and bake for 20 minutes
   at 350 degrees F.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Spinach casserole with yogurt and cheese -- Here is a recipe for a
   spinach casserole that is delightfully cheesy. It might even make you love
   spinach.
   
   *  Don't skimp on the cheese, and use fresh cheese rather than pre-packaged
   grated cheese.
