Instructions

  1. Cook the Uncle Ben’s rice according to directions on the pack. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 9-inch pie pan or casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until softened, 5-6 minutes. Stir in the spinach, rice, and ¼ teaspoon salt and cook another couple of minutes until heated through. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the feta cheese and 3 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
  3. Whisk the eggs, yogurt, dill, ½ teaspoon salt and the pepper together in a medium bowl until smooth. Pour the mixture into the bowl with the spinach and rice. Stir to combine well.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pie pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon Parmesan cheese on top.
  5. Bake in the oven until cooked through and golden brown on top, about 35 minutes. Let cool slightly, then cut into wedges and serve.
