1 tsp. kosher salt, divided
1 (5-oz.) pkg. Full Circle Market organic baby spinach
6 clove(s) garlic, minced
1 Hy-Vee large egg
1 c. Hy-Vee part-skim ricotta cheese
½ c. Soiree traditional feta cheese crumbles
1 tsp. lemon zest
1 tsp. cracked black pepper

  • Hy-Vee nonstick cooking spray
  • Large skillet
  • Whisk
  • Medium bowl

  1. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill for indirect cooking over medium-high heat (375 degrees). Spray bottom and sides of a 15x10-inch jelly roll pan with nonstick spray; set aside.

  2. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add leeks, red onion, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally. Add spinach and garlic. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or just until spinach begins to wilt. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

  3. Whisk together egg, ricotta, and feta cheeses, lemon zest, pepper, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in medium bowl; set aside. 

  4. Unfold puff pastry sheet onto lightly floured work surface; roll to 17x12-inch rectangle. Fold pastry in half and place in prepared pan. Unfold pastry and gently ease onto bottom and sides of prepared pan. Generously prick pastry with a fork.

  5. Stir together ricotta and spinach mixtures; spread in pastry-lined pan to within 1/2-inch of bottom edges. Fold edges of pastry up and over filling to make a border.

  6. Place pan over indirect heat. Close grill lid; grill 35 to 45 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
