Spinach Cheese Casserole

It is Passover which means that eating bread, pasta, or legumes (soy, beans, lentils) is prohibited. These food restrictions can limit anyone's cooking creativity or perhaps it can spark new ideas.


Okay, technically this is not a new idea. I have been making this dish for some time now. It is a really good dish, easy to make and even better to eat. Also, it heats up well and can be eaten for several days after it is prepared.

Ingredients (makes 6-8 servings)
4 eggs, beaten
2 10-oz packages of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained of excess water
1/2 cup of matzah meal (flour can be used instead)
1 1/2 cups of grated cheese, use a mixture of swiss, mozzarella, muenster, kaskaval, or any other cheeses 1 cup of small curd cottage cheese
1/4 grated parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well until everything is blended evenly.
Coat a large round baking pan with oil and spread the mixture in the pan evenly.

Bake at 375°F for 40-50 minutes, until the top is slightly brown.
