Description

Featuring a phyllo crust, quinoa, sun-dried tomato bruschetta and feta cheese, this Mediterranean casserole offers an exciting break from the ordinary entree.


Ingredients
  • 10 sheets Athens Phyllo® Dough (9” x 14”), thawed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (Roland Mediterranean Blend)
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons sundried tomato bruschetta, such as Delallo
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup half & half, fat free
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped for garnish

Directions

Thaw one roll of phyllo, following thawing instructions on package. Preheat oven to 375°F.

Unroll and cover phyllo sheets with plastic wrap, then a slightly damp towel to prevent drying out. Place one sheet of phyllo on work surface. Lightly coat the entire phyllo sheet with cooking spray. Layer and repeat with 9 more sheets of phyllo.

Gently press the layered phyllo into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch tart pan. Trim excess phyllo even with the edge of the pan. Re-roll unused sheets and follow storing instructions on package.

Par bake phyllo crust for 5-7 minutes. Cool slightly.

Layer the quinoa, Feta and sun-dried tomatoes in the par baked crust. In a small mixing bowl, combine the eggs, half & half, salt and pepper until thoroughly blended. Pour into the shell. Place filled tart pan on a baking tray.

Bake for 25 minutes or until casserole is set and slightly golden brown. Garnish with parsley. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut and serve.
