Cook onion and garlic with 2T EVOO until tender. Add to mixing bowl with defrosted spinach, nutmeg, and toss to combine. Add ground meat, salt, pepper, and mix to combine. Form into 4 patties.

Add 2T of EVOO and rosemary to skillet. Add burgers to hot pan and sear until golden brown and cooked through, 4-5 min per side.

While burgers are cooking, heat butter in small pot. Sprinkle flour over butter and cook, stirring frequently, for about 1 min. Whisk the milk into the mixture then stir in the ricotta, Parmigiano, some salt and pepper. Bring to a bubble and simmer until thickened, about 2 min.
