Yes! As long as it’s 10 ounces of freshly chopped spinach (about 2 cups), just finely chop the spinach and prepare the recipe.

Why a cake pan?

I’m on a “cake pan” roll this summer. LOL. It’s so easy to make recipes in the 9×13 size pan, like my Cake Pan Layered Salad.

A cake pan can be used for more than desserts, that is for sure! I love how versatile it is for bringing an appetizer, salad, or dessert to a gathering or barbecue. Plus, my mom always made this recipe in a cake pan.

  2. Place pita wedges on a baking sheet, spray with olive-oil cooking spray, and sprinkle with garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Tips and variations:

  • Optional to make in any size baker.
  • Make your own pita crisps or buy store-bought.
  • Mix up the cheese (what’s in your fridge?)
  • Serve with a sturdy chip (which means the chips won’t break when you dip into the recipe).
  • Make ahead and bake the next day: To make ahead, prepare the same way, but cover the 9×13 pan and chill up to 24 hours.
  • How to bake when you make it ahead: Allow 10 minutes additional cooking time when it’s made ahead (the pan is chilled). Place in a cold oven, set to 400º, and bake about 45 minutes.
