We liked this recipe. I used 4 eggs and 1 cup eggbeaters. I also used low fat feta cheese. I had no green onions so used regular sweet onions, nutmeg and dill. The feta had basil in it. I used low fat ricotta cheese so it was a little less calories than listed. We will have this again. Thanks for a very tasty recipe. Carole in Orlando
Thanks ... I also love spanakopita but wanted something less carb-y. This is delicious! Cottage cheese also works in place of the ricotta.
We had spanakopita appetizers at our wedding, and this recipe brought back memories of that for me (even though I hardly got to eat a bite of ANYTHING at our wedding!). This recipe was super easy to make, and tasted good too! I used one 10 oz. package of frozed chopped spinach that I had thawed and drained, and that made it much easier. I wasn't sure how much "2 bunches" of green onions were, so I used the green and white parts of 4 green onions, and it worked great. I served this with flaky buttermilk biscuits. My husband liked it, which means I will probably make it again someday! :) Made for PAC Spring 2009.
This was wonderful! I've been recently diagnosed with diabetes, so a filo-laden dish is now out of the question; this really does fill the bill! I didn't have a 9x9 casserole, so used an 8x11 one instead, which worked fine.
