Recipe Ingredients:

1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
3 cloves garlic, crushed
3 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese
