Spanakopita (Spinach & Feta Pie)

This dish has two of my favorite ingredients: spinach and feta!  I can never get enough. Super easy to make, just make sure you fully thaw the phyllo sheets (for about 2 hours!). I was not patient enough, coincidentally, many of my phyllo sheets tore. But no big deal, I used the leftover torn sheets to make yummy baklava!

Spanakopita Ingredients: (Bake at 350 for 30 minutes)

  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 3 clove garlic, grated
  • 2 packages frozen spinach, thawed and moisture free
  • 1/2 package cream cheese
  • 1 4 oz package feta cheese
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • 8 Phyllo pastry sheets, thawed
  • Olive oil (to brush on pastry sheets)

Directions:

  1. Saute onion in pan. Add garlic and spinach (without the excess water). Place in bowl and add cream cheese and feta. Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  2. In a greased pie pan, place 1 sheet of oiled phyllo dough. Over lap with 3 more oiled sheets for a total of 4. Place spinach filling inside and top with 4 more oiled phyllo sheets. Tuck the edges in and cut into desired servings. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
