Similar to Greek ‘spanakopita,’ this dish incorporates the wonderful flavors of spinach and feta cheese but without the filo pastry.


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well-drained
  • 1 cup cottage cheese, drained
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese (4 ounces)
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees and coat a 9-inch pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Place the Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs in a small bowl and mix to combine.
  3. Place the olive oil in a medium-sized sauté pan over medium-low heat, and sauté the onion and garlic for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the spinach, cottage cheese, feta cheese, eggs, oregano and pepper to the garlic mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Transfer the spinach mixture to the prepared 9-inch pan and then sprinkle the top with the breadcrumb mixture. Place in the oven for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center tests clean.
