How to Make Spinach

With just a few ingredients this sauteed spinach will be ready in minutes as a perfect side dish to your main entrée.

Add the milk and chicken broth all at once. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Stir in the cooked pasta, spinach, and prosciutto. Spoon the mixture into a 2-quart casserole.
