For the béchamel:


Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large sauté pan [2], add a drizzle or so EVOO [1] and sweat out garlic. Add spinach, stir to warm through. Season with salt and pepper; add lemon juice and nutmeg.

Combine the leftover rice, vegetables, chicken, lemon zest and feta with the cooked spinach mixture. Place everything in a casserole dish [3].

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk [4] in the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Whisk [4] in the milk and cook until thickened slightly; season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Remove the sauce from the heat, temper egg yolk then add it to the béchamel.

Top your casserole dish [3] with béchamel and sprinkle the top with Parm. Place in oven to bake for about 30-40 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
