Creamy Cheesy Spinach

I received 4 cans of low sodium spinach, so I tried my hand at a creamed spinach dish:

1 can spinach - drained
1 packet country gravy (white sauce with salt & pepper)
1 C water
2" cube Swiss Cheese, grated
1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
2 dashes nutmeg

Make white sauce according to package directions or from scratch:
1 TB butter
1 TB flour
1 C milk

Stir in grated cheeses and a couple dashes nutmeg.

When cheese is melted, add spinach and serve warm.

I made it a second time using about 1/4 package cream cheese and 1/4 C Parmesan. Equally as good.

How salty was this? I'm thinking of trying it with some fresh spinach! Thanks for the idea.

Thanks Zhizara, that sounds just wonderful. I usually prefer my greens with vinagar, but this I've got to try!

It wasn't salty at all. I didn't use a lot of cheese, just enough for a little oomph. Really easy and yummy.

I think the texture would be even better with fresh spinach.
