Fast & Easy Dinner: Spinach-Feta Calzone Casserole

Fast & Easy Dinner: Spinach-Feta Calzone Casserole

Spinach and feta are a classic Mediterranean combination. The salty feta perfectly complements the fresh greens. Tonight use this dynamic duo to make a delicious casserole sized calzone. The vegetarian filling — reminiscent of spanakopita — is a mixture of wilted spinach, sautéed onion, crushed red pepper, garlic, and feta.

To take a look at the recipe that I found on,

  1. Roll dough into a 12-inch square; fit dough into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray, allowing excess dough to hang over edges of dish.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°.
  3. Prepare filling: combine 1 teaspoon oil and 2 garlic cloves; set aside.
  4. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add remaining 3 garlic cloves and onion; sauté 5 minutes or until onion is tender and lightly browned.
  5. Spoon onion mixture into a large bowl. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper; keep warm.
  6. Add half of spinach to pan; cook 1 minute or until spinach begins to wilt, stirring frequently. Add remaining spinach; cook 5 minutes or until spinach wilts. Place spinach in a colander; press until barely moist.
  7. Add spinach and cheese to onion mixture, stirring until well combined.
  8. Brush dough with half of garlic-oil mixture; top with spinach mixture. Fold excess dough over filling to cover; brush with remaining garlic-oil mixture.
  9. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until golden. Let stand 10 minutes.

Serves 6.

bunnychick: I wouldn't rinse the feta before using it. Perhaps you should purchase a different kind, like one with herbs or that's not packed in brine. Hope that helps!

Should you rinse the feta cheese before using it? I have some packed in brine and the last time I cooked with it, it was SUPER salty (obviously!). Any prep suggestions? Thanks!

Partysugar, I have to ask again if you will marry me. I'm totally in love with you. I should call my husband and tell him what he's having for dinner. He'll salivate.
