I posted this here, but you could use this as a Main dish also - it makes a great dish to take to a pot luck - I got this from the South Beach board and took the advise of the original poster and added in some garlic (mostly because DH and I like it a lot!) and baked in a smaller pan - this is one of those recipes you can tweak to your own taste.

Spinach Ricotta Pie

1/3 cup olive oil

1 large onion thinly sliced

1lb fresh spinach cut into ribbons washed and thoroughly dried

1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese

4 eggs

1 cup feta cheese - crumbled

1 tablespoon dried oregano

salt & pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Heat oil in heavy pot over high heat - add onions and saute until translucent

3. add spinach in batches if necessary - saute until just wilted

5. Lightly beat the ricotta and eggs together in a bowl

6. Add the spinach mixture, feta, oregano, salt & pepper

7. Mix thoroughly - pour into a greased 9x13 inch pan

8. Bake for about 40 minutes until top is lightly browned

Serve warm or at room temp.

Enjoy -

Years ago, in my "barefoot earth mother," peace, love and soybeans life, I made a similar thing using Swiss Chard (which I grew in my own veggie garden).

An 8 by 8 would be ok - just cook until it is brown on top - I used an oval pyrex dish I have which is in between a 9 x 13 and an 8 x 8 and cooked it the same 40 minutes.

By the way I like swish chard too! I love all the weird greens even fiddleheads and kale!
