Recipe by Eismeer

Easy to prepare, but "complex" in taste. Serve with e.g. sour cream dip/sauce (sour cream, cream cheese, salt, pepper, garlic and parsley). You can either use puff pastry for a richer outcome and taste or phyllo-sheets (about 4). If you don't like your Spanakopita in strudelshape, use phyllo sheets and a buttered casserole and proceed "lasagna-like" (first and last layer = buttered phyllo sheets)
