READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by FirstChoiceHealthyF

Delicious way to eat spinach. You can substitute the cottage cheese for part-skim ricotta cheese and the two laughing cow cheese wedges for ½ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese.

These spinach cakes are terrific! I subbed parmesan for the laughing cow as you suggested in your intro, otherwise made as directed. I sprinkled a bit of crushed red pepper flakes on top when I served it; I would probably use that instead of black pepper in the mixture next time. Easy to make, savory and delicious - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2011
