Spinach Filling

  • 20 oz frozen chopped spinach , thawed and squeeze to drain liquid
  • 1 cup full fat ricotta cheese
  • ¼ cup milk , cream, or half and half
  • ½ cup fresh flat leaf parsley roughly chopped
  • 1 ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 oz Greek feta cheese , crumbled
  • Salt and pepper

White Sauce

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 large cloves garlic , finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 2 cups half & half or heavy cream
  • 2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper


  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 4 oz Greek feta cheese , crumbled
  • 2 full sheets of gluten free Matzo Crackers (I use Yehuda brand)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 9-inch baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, combine spinach, ricotta, milk, parsley, oregano, garlic powder. Add 8 ounces of crumbled feta. Taste and season with salt and pepper. If it seems very dry, add a tablespoon or two of additional milk. Set aside.
  • In a medium sized, heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt butter and garlic over medium heat. Once garlic is softened slightly (but not browned at all), sprinkle with arrowroot powder and stir to combine. Add half and half or heavy cream and stir to eliminate lumps. Allow it to thicken, then turn off the heat and add cheese, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine.
  • Gather all ingredients - spinach filling, white sauce, matzo sheets, toppings, and greased baking dish. Begin to layer ingredients starting with ½ of the white sauce, then 1 full sheet of matzo, ½ of the spinach, another sheet of matzo, the remaining white sauce, the remaining spinach filling, then sprinkle with the remaining 4 ounces of crumbled feta and 1 cup of shredded Parmigiano Reggiano.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, until lightly browned and heated through. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.
