   Don't you just want to shout it out whenever you are having Greek food? Opa! Well, it's not really Greek... it just has spinach, tomato, and feta in it, so that was the first thing that came to my mind. Besides it's so yummy that I'm sure it could be easily mistaken for ambrosia, which really made me think it's Greek. If you are a (check all that apply): pizza lover, vegetarian, veggie lover, cheese lover, or calorie counter, this recipe will steal your heart! It's not difficult to figure out what I made this time, is it? It's a healthy-cheesy-vegetarian-Greek style-pita bread-pizza. Sounds like a mouthful, doesn't it? Here is what you need (serves 4):

*  4 whole wheat pita bread
*  1 cup part skim ricotta cheese
*  1/2 cup feta cheese
*  2 tomatoes
*  1 bag baby spinach
*  1 large onion
*  2 garlic cloves
*  1 tbsp olive oil
*  pinch of nutmeg
*  salt and pepper

   Saute chopped onions and garlic with olive oil until soft and translucent. Add spinach, nutmeg, salt and pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes until spinach is wilted. Spread ricotta cheese on the pita bread, top with the spinach and onion mixture, cover with sliced tomatoes, sprinkle with feta cheese, and bake at 400F for 15 minutes.

   Crispy, creamy, fresh and very flavorful. Nutmeg really gives a "warmth" and comfort to the dish (like all this cheese isn't enough to do that). Highly recommended!
