    Kathy228's Note:

    This is a variation on the Greek spinach pie, Spanokopita. Spaghetti is used instead of filo leaves. It's easier to make and tastes great the next day.

      I made a half recipe of this dish w/1 sml chg. I used fresh spinach, added garlic to that mixture as a pers pref & otherwise followed the recipe as written. Even a half recipe filled a 10-in rd baking dish & IMO would easily serve 6-8 as a side dish. DH is a meat & potatoes guy, but I like finding good pasta dishes to add greater variety to our meals. I served this w/oven-baked fish fillets & liked the starch & veggie parts of our meal combined in 1 dish. This was very flavourful, but DH & I were true to form here as I found it in need of salt & he did not. DH said the crispy texture of some of the spaghetti on the top layer was not much to his liking, so I will prob chg the layering a bit next time. All this said, we liked this dish a lot & it definitely will be repeated. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

      Wonderful! Despite the seemingly long prep ai is very easy. I made half the amount but wish I had made more! It is very forgiving I forgot to halve the spices but it was still tasty! This is definately a keeper! Thanks Kathy!

      I cooked this up tonight for dinner and it was very good. Mild, so I added a little butter and salt. I halved the recipe, using frozen spinach and whole wheat spaghetti. Thank you for a nice dinner! I'm glad I picked you for the Pick a Chef! ;)
