Eggs Florentine

Serves 2 as a main dish entree. Accompany with a green salad for an easy dinner.

20 spinach leaves (washed)
8 big basil leaves, chopped (optional)
1/4 cup romano cheese (or a blend of romano and parmesan)
4 eggs
4 tbsp cream
salt and pepper
hummus (optional)
diced tomatoes (optional)
goat cheese (optional -- sometimes we use the goat cheese and not the hummus, or vice versa)

Preheat oven to 375. Spray two small oven safe dishes (ramekins) with PAM. Microwave the spinach, wrapped in a paper towel, for about one minute (til it's wilted). Divide spinach leaves and basil leaves between dishes. Sprinkle with half of the romano cheese, dividing the half between the dishes. If desired, place a couple dabs of hummus in each dish, and some diced tomatoes. Add a couple slices of goat cheese to each dish, if desired. Crack two eggs into each dish. Don't stir them up or try to blend the ingredients. Pour 2 tbsp cream into each dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and remaining romano. Bake for 25 minutes or until eggs are set.

A wonderful Saturday evening dinner while watching Britcoms on PBS
