Spinach Soufflé

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 11 x 7 x 2-inch glass baking dish, then sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Bring milk to boil in medium saucepan or in microwave oven (2 – 3 minutes on high power). Remove from heat. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in heavy medium saucepan over low heat. Add flour; stir 3 minutes. Gradually whisk in warm milk. Increase heat to medium; whisk constantly until mixture is thick and smooth, about 4 minutes. Remove sauce from heat. Whisk a quarter of the sauce into the beaten egg yolks, then stir that mixture into the remaining sauce. Cool slightly. 
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots; sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Add chopped spinach and cook until just wilted. Transfer to large bowl. Mix in sauce, 1/13cups cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
