Promise of Spinach & Ricotta Slices

This is one of Tracey's favourite foods so I made it for dinner tonight. In point of fact, it's so much her favourite I can usually elicit bedroom favours when I make it. Naturally, having given birth to little Miss0 less than two weeks ago, we're in the 'no go' zone for a while so there is no hope of that, but I did get a squeal and a hug and a kiss.

You will need:

250gm frozen spinach.
10 sheets filo pastry.
2 shallots, chopped.
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped.
2 eggs.
zest of one lemon.
125g feta cheese.
125g ricotta cheese.
60g parmesan cheese, grated.
black pepper.
oil spray.

Cook spinach, drain. Add shallots, parsley, lemon zest, eggs, feta, ricotta, parmesan and pepper. Spray a pan, cover base with pastry. Fill the pan with mixture. Cover with pastry and spray the top. Bake for 40 minutes at 170 degrees. Put kids to bed and get jiggy with it. Or watch Escape To The Country, like we did :)

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
