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

  1. Thaw, drain and squeeze the spinach well to remove any liquid. Place in a large bowl.
  2. Saute onions in a large skillet in olive oil over medium heat until soft and translucent - approximately 15 minutes.
  3. Add the parmesan cheese, softened cream cheese, eggs, bread crumbs and salt and pepper to the spinach. Mix well.
  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.
