DIRECTIONS

  • Finely dice onion, and sautee in a pan with EVOO.
  • Once translucent, add garlic and spinach until wilted.
  • Remove from heat, and let cool.
  • Dice feta into medium size chunks. Add to spinach mixture along with parmesan cheese.
  • Mix until everything is incorporated.
  • Add salt + pepper, stir.
  • Remove filo dough from box, and place between a damp kitchen towel to keep moist while working.
  • Add a small amount of EVOO on the bottom of your baking dish.
  • Place an even layer of filo on the bottom of the dish, overlapping the sides.
  • Continue to do this at least 10 times overlapping layers, and brushing with EVOO as you go. The more filo at the bottom, the thicker, crunchier crust you will have.
  • Add your spinach cheese mixture, and press so it is evenly in the bottom of your pan.
  • Fold over overlapping filo.
  • Add several layers on top to cover the pie, and brush with EVOO.
  • Place into the oven at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
  • Let cool 5-10 minutes, and dig in!
  • It will be even better the next day! Enjoy! :).
