Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Drain the spinach well. If using onion and garlic, saute them first in 2 tablespoons of the melted butter. Mix the spinach, eggs, butter, cottage cheese, flour, and cheese in a large mixing bowl. Add the onions and garlic, if desired. Season with salt and pepper. Pour all into the prepared dish, and bake for 1 hour.
