What you'll need
6 cups raw baby spinach
2 tsp. olive oil, divided
½ cup lowfat cottage cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 TBSP low fat feta cheese
What to do
Place spinach in a microwave-safe bowl that is just large enough to contain the spinach. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Spread cottage cheese over the spinach, then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes, until spinach is wilted and cottage cheese is warm.
