4 pkgs. frozen spinach
1 lb. ricotta cheese
1 lb. feta cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
16 sheets phyllo dough
3/4 cups butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
salt & pepper

Allow spinach to defrost completely. Squeeze spinach dry& combine with cheeses, onion, garlic, eggs, and salt & pepper. Arrange 8 phyllo sheets , each brushed with butter in a greased10x15 inch pan & cover with spinach filling. cover top with 8 more buttered phyllo, seal edges as best you can. brush top with melted butter. bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.

not a diet food but I make and eat it once with a nice side salad, then I freeze the rest in individual servings, so when I have it, I just eat one portion then I don't have it again for weeks. it really does freeze well & makes an easy lunch to take to work.
Enjoy!

Sounds so yummy! Do you mind if I use it for a Recipe Swap that I'm in over at ISC (Inspire, Swap, Chat)? I'm in one with a LOTR (Lord of The Rings) theme and I chose to do Aragon--maybe I'll call it Aragon's Airy Spinach Pie...
