Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cook spinach to package directions, cool and squeeze out all excess water and rechop by hand or food processor.
  • Sauté the onion and garlic in some olive oil.
  • Chop the green onions, parsley and dill.
  • Combine the spinach, sautéed mixture, green onions, parsley and dill.
  • Blend in crumbled feta cheese.
  • Season to desired taste.
  • Fork beat eggs and add to the spinach mixture.
  • Set aside.
  • Butter a 9 x 13 baking pan.
  • Layer 8 to 10 leaves of phyllo, butter each individual sheet.
  • Add spinach mixture.
  • Top with another 8 to 10 more phyllo leaves, again layering and buttering each individual sheet.
  • With a scissors cut off and trim any overlapping phyllo pastry.( or you could tuck in or overlap excess over the top ) .
  • Cover pan with a damp tea towel and plastic wrap.
  • Chill 30 minutes before baking.
  • This can also be prepared and covered several hours before baking.
  • Bake in a 350F oven about one hour or until puffed and golden.
  • Cool 15 to 20 minutes before cutting.
  • Note: Leftovers reheat well. I like to serve with rice pilaf.
  • Also: when working with phyllo pastry read package instructions because this pastry dries out and crumbles quickly if not kept covered.

    This looks outstanding and makes me want to go to the store tomorrow and buy some phyllo dough! The last thing I made with it was Baklava and I had trouble keeping it from drying out.

    Do you have any tips for working with the phyllo dough that you could offer?

    Also, what kind of camera do you use? I want to get a really nice one when I can afford it.

    You should really do a cookbook. I know people would buy it.
    If you sold it I would ask for an autograph.

    :-)

    A nice tall pie, LOADED with spinach. Mmmmm... I've always wanted to make a spanakopita, but it just looks so intimidating. I think it's high time I make this, especially if it can look this good!
