Spanakopita is such a great dish. But let's face it. It's a pie. And as a pie, it's not always great for the waistline. But now you can have your pie and eat it too. As the recipe below shows, you can combine all the ingredients (except for that calorie-laden pastry) and still enjoy all the great flavors of spanakopita. But without any of those nasty carbs dragging you down.
Of course, you could use regular cheese in this casserole. But why do that when you can substitute cottage cheese and cut down on even more calories? And, it's delicious! It makes the perfect filler and let's be honest, you won't even notice that it's lower-calorie cottage cheese rather than fatty other stuff. And there's a little it of that in there too, so don't think you'll be sacrificing on flavor. In fact, with this dish, you won't feel as though you're sacrificing anything at all. And it might just become your new favorite way to enjoy spanakopita.
