A delicious pan-roasted mixture of butternut squash and spinach nestled between buttery and flaky phyllo sheets.
Hi! Happy Sunday! I hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving weekend!!
Are your tummies still full?! Are your leftovers all gone?! Are YOU still having pumpkin pie for breakfast?! That’s the best part!!
Well, I hope you aren’t too full because I’ve got some mad-delicious stuff coming at you today – it’s this Butternut Squash and Spinach Pie! It’s SO awesome!
By the way, if you hadn’t noticed, allow me to say; Welcome to the land of I’ve got spinach and I’ll find a way to use it! With a healthy toss of feta cheese for good measure. I’m cray cray for spinach. I have it on hand at all times; fresh, canned, frozen… I make sure that I will never run out.
You know what else? I just figured this out. If I could have been a professional one-pot meal makerrrr… ummmm… I guess I would have been a professional one-pot meal maker!
That didn’t go over as easy as it should have… I thought I was going to come up with the punch line as I was typing it, but nope. I’m drawing a blank.
Who doesn’t love a one-pot meal?! Of course you do, except that you’ll kinda need two pots for this, unless you are cooler than I and your baking pot/dish/pan is one of those from stove-top-to-oven-to-table thingamajigger. Lucky!
This was supposed to be another spinach and feta concoction, but because I HATE wasting food, that little squash sitting on my kitchen counter had to be thrown in there. I wasn’t sure if anyone in this household would go for it, and because I think everything I make is damn awesome (biased, I know), I was skeptical about posting it here. However, all that changed when my 35-year old kid… ahem, husband… was all over this dish! The pickiest person on Earth somehow planted his face in this beautiful mess and couldn’t stop eating it. Fist pump!!
Also?! Don’t judge, but I used canned spinach for this. I kept the good and fresh stuff for my salads. Yes, I said salads. I’m going on a let’s-lose-5-pounds-before-the-next-holiday-dinner-party DIET so we can fit into our New Year’s Eve dresses! Good plan, right?
One more thing. How many exclamation points and question marks do I use in one post!?! Geeeez! I just noticed that!! *wink*
