For this recipe, all you need is a muffin pan for every eight cheesy spinach cakes you want to make. Just blend pre-washed chopped baby spinach leaves with part-skim ricotta and Romano or Parmesan cheese plus garlic and eggs. With only 80 calories per two spinach cakes, this dish makes a delightful healthy appetizer or a side dish.
