This turned out beautiful and delicious! I've only had frozen or "fast food" spanakopita, so I knew homemade would be much better. I always thought it would be a pain to make because of the phyllo, but I was so wrong - this was super easy! I added 8 oz of chopped mushrooms and dried parsley (because I forgot to buy fresh). After sauteing, I drained in a collendar, because it was super watery. I added about 5-6 tbsps of asiago and low fat ricotta (I didn't notice the "full fat" part of the recipe until after I bot it). I took this to Christmas Eve dinner for my vegetarian nephew and everyone enjoyed and commented on it. My MIL said "Marla, where do you get all of these great recipes?" and I told her all about Zaar :-) Thanks again Kittencal! I can always make your recipes to take for special occassions and know they will be great!
I made this tonight. I could not wait. The flavors of this dish are superb. I love the ricotta cheese. I do miss the cream cheese though, I think I will add about 4 oz next time. Thanks Kitten for a great recipe. -Bird-
This was terrific! A nice blend of cheeses and vegetables that made a tasty and pretty filling pie.
