How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Thaw the spinach, drain thoroughly, wringing out any excess liquid.
  • Chop the onion and garlic, cooking in olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat until soft. Add the spinach, cooking another 10 minutes, or until any remaining liquid is cooked out.
  • Remove from heat, add the egg beaters and feta cheese. Add a little black pepper, if desired (the feta can be salty, so you won't need any salt). If possible, let rest in the fridge while you prepare the phyllo dough.
  • In a 13x9 pan, layer 6 sheets of phyllo dough, spraying each layer with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray.
  • Evenly spread the spinach mixture onto the dough layer, then continue layering the remaining phyllo dough sheets on top. Spray the final layers well, especially the edges, as the dough can crinkle and flake off.
  • Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Cut into 8 large pieces (4"x3"), which is approx 4 points each.

    Otterpond - the fresh spinach is a good idea! It might taste even better that way too. 4 cups cooked down sounds about right... I will have to give it a try.
    The frozen was/is cheap and I usually have a few boxes stashed away in the freezer ;)

    toleliz - I usually can only find the fat free feta at Meijer or at Costco. Costco is a better deal, but you get two packages. Supposedly you can freeze it, but I've never tried!

    There is a Meijer in Taylor on Eureka off of 75 (between Telegraph and Allen Rds) It's usually in the "specialty" cheese section, near the deli. It's already crumbled, and some store even carries the fat-free flavors (Herb & Garlic, Sun-dried Tomato, etc).

    But the WW Message board suggested Tops, Waldbaum or Wegmans for Canadian store options... I'm not sure if you have any of those in your area, or a Trader Joe's might as well.

    If all else, apparently Amazon sells it!

    Good luck! Let me know how it goes!

    Thanks for posting this recipe! I too am watching my weight and I love spinach pie too! I will try this soon but could I ask you what store you buy the fat free feta in-I live in Canada but we have family in the Windsor are and get over to Taylor MI once in a while. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find very many fat free cheeses here in Burlington.

    I am definitely going to try this! I love anything that can express spinach in a new way. Thanks! Bookmarked.

    Question? Do you see any reason fresh spinach couldn't be used? Looks like about 4 cups of fresh spinach wilted. What do you think?

    Being 100% Greek, I'm a bit skeptical. Being 100% Greek I'm also prone to gaining weight easily, so I am more than ready to give this a try. LOL Bookmarked and thanks for reworking the recipe so that I don't have to.
