Easy Spanakopita (Greek Spinach and Feta Pie)

"This is much easier than having to layer phyllo dough and the puff pastry is far more yummy in my opinion. My kids devour this and it's a great way to get those veggies in."

  1. Spanakopita is one of my favorite things to eat. I used two pie crusts. The refridge kind and just rolled them out. One on bottom and topped with the other. Your filling is right on. Delicious!
  2. My family loved this. Super easy, tasty and quick to throw together. We didn't miss the phyllo either. Will definitely be making this part of our regular rotation.


I live in a beautiful seaside town in Massachusetts with my husband, 2 daughters and 2 cats. When not experimenting in the kitchen, I'm writing steampunk romance (Not sure what that is? Check out my website!). Recently agented, I hope to see my books in print soon. Can't wait! <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/454328/zaar%20photo.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Amelia (2 y.o. here) enjoying a cider donut after apple picking. <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/454328/zaar%202.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Maeve (4 y. o. here) I love cooking and can't resist trying to figure out what ingredients went into a good meal. I'm not really one for measuring, and usually just make things up as I go along. My brain tends to shut down at the sight of too many ingredients in a recipe (must be A.D.D. or something) so that's something I'm trying to work on. Most of my recipes are quick and easy to make, since I'm usually trying to get dinner out in a hurry. My family is Greek and my husband is Irish, but also lived in Spain for several years, so my cooking tends to reflect those cultures, but in general we're fairly adventurous. Feel free to zmail me!

Update: Just got a new camera, so hopefully my pictures will improve drastically. I had been using the camera on my cell. Needless to say the pics weren't great. I'll try retaking any that I've already posted. http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/CTDSites.woa
