In honor of National Pi Day, a day in history that celebrates the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter (3.14), I can't think of a better way to celebrate such an ironic-named holiday than to share a slice of this simply delicious, savory spinach pie recipe from the archives.
A simple Greek inspired pie combining savory flavors such as spinach, feta, Asiago cheese, dill and scallions. Perfect to take to a potluck!
Served with a salad, you can turn this into a main dish, or cut it into smaller wedges to serve as an appetizer. If you use full fat feta cheese, the fat only increases by 1 gram, and the points increase to 4 per serving. Enjoy this warm or at room temperature.
