I made this recipe just to try something different and was pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed it. The combination of oregano, cinnamon, and garlic powder give a wonderful and unique flavor to this recipe. I used spinach in the recipe and just put it in without thawing it and it worked well since it was loose in a bag of frozen spinach and not compact in a box of frozen spinach. Feta cheese can be expensive, but if you shop around, you might find it at an affordable price. I found feta cheese for $1.99 at Aldi compared to over $4.00 at Meijer. My preschooler and toddler loved this and any leftovers were gone by lunch the next day. I will be making this again.
