Lola loves… Easy spinach and ricotta pie

What you will need:
1x red onion, finely chopped
2x garlic cloves, crushed
250g spinach
250g (or one pot) ricotta
1x tsp nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste
The special ingredient: choose from 1/2 pack feta, 3x hard boiled eggs or blue cheese to taste
Filo pastry
Cake tin (one with a removable base is best)
Olive oil spray (I used the spray device from Fry Light on a bottle of real oil)

Fry the diced onion and crushed garlic until the onion has softened. Add 250g of spinach to the pan and cook until it has wilted, then squeeze to drain it.

Mix in a pot of ricotta (about 250g or the same weight as the spinach). Add a teaspoon of nutmeg, a pinch of salt and a very generous grating of black pepper.

At this point you can add you special added ingredient. I chose half a pack feta  but hard-boiled eggs or a smaller amount of blue cheese would also work. Mix it well.

Next, spray oil on both sides of each sheet of filo (I used four), gently line the cake tin with them at a variety of angles, leaving the excess to hang over the sides. Whack your mix in and pile the excess filo on top allowing it to create peaks and folds that will crisp.

Cook for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees.
