DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Thaw spinach in the microwave. (Substitute - cook fresh spinach in skillet with a small amount of olive oil to make 2 heaping cups cooked).
  • In a large bowl mix together cottage cheese (substitute ricotta if desired), eggs and flour. Then mix in the thawed spinach and shredded cheese and add salt and pepper to taste (about 4 shakes of salt and a couple shakes of pepper).
  • Scoop mixture into 9" pie plate with our without pie crust and spread around evenly with a spatula.
  • No Crust: Bake for 45-60 mins or until fork in the center comes out clean and it is slightly browned around the edges (depending on the depth of the pan, cooking time will vary).
  • Crust: Bake for 1-1.25 hours. I do an 8" pie pan for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I recommend covering the edges of your crust with foil until the last 15 mins or so of baking (the thicker the crust, the less it will brown).
  • Serve warm topped with crumbled feta cheese if desired.
