Low Fat Spanakopita (Spinach Pie)

Guilt free and great to make for lunches, just reheat in a microwave for a minute and you're good to go!

300g Pack Spinach
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
4 Shallots (Chopped)
2 Cloves of Garlic (Crushed)
75g Low Fat Feta
1002 Low Fat Ricotta
4 Eggs
1 Pack Filo Pastry
Oil Spray

Pre-heat oven to 170°C fan-forced.  Use spray oil to grease a pie dish.  In a saucepan begin to wilt the spinach in some boiling water, once wilted make sure you thoroughly dry with paper towel.

Heat oil in a frying pan and add shallots and garlic, once browned take off heat and add to a bowl with wilted spinach.  Add ricotta, eggs and feta and stir until combined. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

Line the pie dish with three layers of filo, spraying oil between each sheet, pour in mixture and spread evenly.  Add another three layers of filo, spraying in between and fold bottom layers of filo over to create a crust.

Cover loosely with foil and bake for 30 minutes, remove foil and bake for a further 10.

Let cool and enjoy!
