This was inspired by wanting spanakopita but not having the ingredients for it so coming up with something similar in sticking with the "Clean Out Meals."

"That's just leaves." - Canaan talking about the spinach on his fork.

Place one bag of frozen but thawed spinach in a colander and sprinkle a pinch or two of salt on top. Let rest for 5 minutes then squeeze out liquid. 

Meanwhile, saute half a chopped onion with 3 t olive oil and 3 t pine nuts in a skillet over medium heat for approx 5 minutes or until onions are clear and nuts are toasted.

Ad spinach, 1 T lemon juice or a couple of drops of lemon essential oil, 1/4 t pepper and 1/8 t salt to saute. Cook 5 minutes more. Drain off liquid, if any.

Melt 1/4 C butter in separate bowl. I used the microwave.

Using 1 package of refrigerated pie crust, unroll onto a flat surface. Brush with melted butter. Cut into 4 pieces each like a pie. Place a tablespoon or more of filling centered at top. Fold right corner across and down to make a point. Press edges with fork. Place on greased baking sheet. Brush each with butter. 

Cook in a preheated oven of 400° for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately.
