Kosher salt

Cooking spray
1 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter
½ cup red onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 cups low fat milk
½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
5 ounces crumbled feta cheese, divided
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram or thyme

Directions:
Directions:
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. When boiling, add macaroni and boil until just under al dente according to package directions.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a deep casserole dish (roughly 8 ½ ” x 10 ½ ”) with cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium sauce pot over medium-high heat, melt butter.
Add red onion and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute more.
Sprinkle flour over the top and stir, cooking 2-3 minutes more.
Add the milk whisk until boiling.
Remove from heat and add mozzarella and 1/3 of the feta. Stir until mostly melted.
Add oregano, marjoram, pepper, diced tomatoes, olives and spinach. Stir to combine, add 1/4 teaspoon salt, or more as needed.
Transfer everything to the casserole dish. Top with the remaining feta cheese.
Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until top golden. Garnish with dill or parsley.
