Spinach and Feta Pie - Donna Hay


This week, at WWDH, we are making this delicious "pie" with fresh spinach, onions, eggs, seasonings and of course a crust.   As you may have noticed, I adjust recipes to what I have at hand. 

 Actually, I went to the store to get phyllo dough and they were out and that leaves me without the necessary dough.It is rare when I don't have puffed pastry on hand so that became the new dough.  Instead of layering like with phyllo, I rolled it out and fit it to a baking pan.  The sides were really too high but that did not affect the taste.


I did add a little garlic to the recipe and cut out the salt.  I did use dill and black pepper.  I had no fresh spinach but I did have frozen so I squeezed out the water and used it instead.


To top off everything, I took the feta out of the refrigerator to find that it had expired at the beginning of September.  Now what?  That was easy.  I used the same amount of goat cheese which I microwaved to soften it before mixing it with the other ingredients.


This  is another easy Donna Hay recipe.  Mix your ingredients and plop them into the crust.  Bake and eat.


My word on this recipe is SCRUMPTIOUS.
