Close your eyes – you will swear you are eating Greek Spinach Pie

Matzo Spinach Pie

20 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

6 sheets of matzo or 8 oz matzo farfel

4 large eggs or 1 cup egg substitute

6 ounces grated Parmesan cheese (Parmigiano Reggiano is best)

1 package (8 oz) farmer cheese

4 ounces crumbed feta cheese

Cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly soak the matzo in water to slightly soften, crush and drain thoroughly or use the farfel with a small amount of water added to soften. 

Beat the eggs, add the spinach, matzo and cheeses. Combine thoroughly. Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray. Spread the mixture in the pan and bake for 45 minutes or until the top is golden and firm. Serve hot or at room temperature. Serves 6 as a main dish and 8-10 as a side dish.
