Spinach Parmesan Stuffed Pork Loin
- 2 pounds Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet
- 3 cups frozen spinach
- ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- ¼ cup ricotta cheese
- 6 cloves minced garlic
- 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
- Kitchen twine
- 1 tablespoon light olive oil
Cut loin filet in half vertically. Place one piece in sealed ziplock or wrap in plastic wrap. Use a mallet to flatten to about ½-inch thick. Repeat process for other piece, set aside.
Cook spinach according to package directions. Drain excess liquid with a fine mesh strainer, pressing to remove as much liquid as possible. In a medium bowl, combine spinach, both cheeses, garlic and thyme.
Evenly spread mixture over flattened pork loins, up to about ½-inch from edges. Tightly roll from one edge then wrap and tie with kitchen twine.
Heat olive oil to medium-high heat in a large nonstick pan or skillet. Add pork loins and cook 5-8 minutes, until browned. Rotate and brown other side, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook until internal temp reaches at least 145°F., about 10-15 minutes (rotating if needed). Remove from pan and let sit 10 minutes. Slice into 1-inch thick pieces and serve.
