This is one of those dishes that can be cut into small squares and served at a buffet or served as a meatless dinner along with a salad (which is what I did tonight!) It's very rich, so a little goes a long way..... Sooooo good!

How to Make Spinach Torta

Step-by-Step

  4. Add the spinach mixture to the onions and mix well.
  5. Roll out one of the pie crusts and place into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish. Fill with the spinach mixture.
  6. Roll out the second pie crust and place on top of casserole. Prick the top pie crust with a fork and brush with a little oil.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Let cool around 10 minutes or so before cutting into squares. Can serve at room temperature.
