Recipe Notes

  • If using frozen spinach, you can squeeze it dry by placing it, thawed, into a colander and pressing down with your hands to release the water.
  • You can use cottage cheese instead of ricotta cheese.
  • For some spice, add some crushed red pepper flakes.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  2. If using frozen spinach, pour the mixture into a greased 1.5-quart baking dish. If using fresh spinach, pour the mixture into a greased 9x9-inch baking pan.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until the center is gently firm.
  4. Serve warm and enjoy for any meal!
