Spanakopita is one of my favorite dishes and I usually make it a full dinner dish. This is my mum's recipe and she always makes her own phyllo pastry. It's certainly worth the trouble. The most important thing in a good spinach pie is the filling. In Greece we use fresh spinach and some other greens for their aroma. They grow in the fields, back yards but we can also find them in some stores and open markets. It's hard to find elsewere but you can also try without them. The spinach pie is an any time special treat!
