Spinach baked with double cream and Parmesan

Side Serves 4 35 min
This is a simple and heavenly dish. Make it as a side to roasts, chops or fish. Or have it as a weeknight dinner with a poached egg and torn off pieces of crusty bread to soak up the creamy juices. You can add another cheese in place of Parmesan if you're vegetarian – a slightly smoky Swiss cheese would be good. Or sprinkle over some breadcrumbs before baking for a bit of crunch.
