  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Step 2

    In a large pot, combine the butter and olive oil heat on medium-high until melted. Add the chopped onions and garlic and sauté until translucent and fragrant.
  3. Step 3

    Add the flour and whisk until it is all incorporated. Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. This will cook off the flour taste and help the sauce to thicken later on.
  4. Step 4

    Add the half and half and heavy cream. Whisk until combined. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently until the mixture has thickened.
  5. Step 5

    Stir the Parmesan cheese and frozen spinach into the white sauce. Heat on low heat until the spinach is warmed through and completely defrosted. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add a little milk if the sauce is too thick.
  6. Step 6

    In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together the ricotta cheese, egg, and salt and pepper.
  7. Step 7

    Add a layer of the white spinach sauce to the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish.
  8. Step 8

    Layer 2 matzo crackers on top of the sauce.
  9. Step 9

    Add about a 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of the ricotta cheese mixture to the top of the crackers. Spread it out evenly. Then repeat with the sauce, matzo, and ricotta cheese.
  10. Step 10

    Once you've reached the top of the casserole dish, top with the whole milk and mozzarella cheese.
  11. Step 11

    Cover the casserole dish with aluminum foil and place it on a sheet tray in case it overflows while baking. Bake for 45 minutes or until bubbly. Remove the foil and allow the top to brown in the oven for an additional 15 minutes.

    Serve immediately and enjoy.
