  • 3.Take it off the heat and mix in the spinach, salt, pepper and white sauce.
  • 4.Transfer mixture into a oven proof serving dish.
  • 5.Sprinkle the cheese to cover the mixture, garnish with the tomato slices and bake in a pre-heated oven for half an hour, or till cheese is slightly brown.
  • For the white sauce:
  • 1.In a heavy based pan, heat the butter, stir in the flour and saute till slightly darkened.
  • 2.Add milk very gradually, stirring vigorously all the time to avoid lumps. Bring to a boil.
  • 3.Lower the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes, continuing to stir to avoid scorching.
  • 4.Add the salt, pepper and any other seasoning that you desire.
  • 5.Chicken can be baked in the same way, by using cooked chicken instead of mushrooms, and you need not have the spinach in it.
