Almost Fat-free Spinach Pie

Submitted by: MOKONA
Almost Fat-free Spinach Pie

Introduction

I love spinach pie, but extremely picky about the flavor (not a dill fan). I was surprised at how fatty it can be, so I created a low-fat version when I tried the Weight Watchers diet. Each slice has about 2.5 g of fat (from the olive oil and dough), which works out to be about 4 points per (large) slice. I love spinach pie, but extremely picky about the flavor (not a dill fan).

    1 medium yellow onion, chopped

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Thaw the spinach, drain thoroughly, wringing out any excess liquid.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. In a 13x9 pan, layer 6 sheets of phyllo dough, spraying each layer with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray.
6. 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.
7. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until golden brown.
8. Cut into 8 large pieces (4"x3"), which is approx 4 points each.
