    So yummy and very easy to make! Halved the recipe and used fresh baby spinach and it turned out perfect. Baked in two single jumbo muffin tins (not the pan with six muffin cups). Lined the two tins with four half pieces of phyllo after cutting entire phyllo package down the middle. Sprayed tin with olive oil spray, then sprayed each of the four half pieces after lining tin (let extra hang over sides). Filled to the top of tin with filling then just folded the extra over top and sprayed the entire thing and baked. After cooling, just popped the entire thing out and served with tzatziki on the side. A-mazing! Thank you canarygirl, this recipe is a definite keeper! =)

    Awesome recipe!!! I made it in a casserole dish as shown in the photo and it worked great. I used nonstick spray in between the phyllo sheets and that was much quicker and so easy! My husband is Lebanese so I added 1/3 cup cooked rice and 1 teaspoon cinnamon to the mixture to make it a little more Middle Eastern versus Greek, but otherwise followed the recipe as is. This mixture would also be great in rolled grape or cabbage leaves. Delicious!!

    This is an amazingly easy and delicious recipe and I love it - made it several times now and can't recommend it highly enough. I add a large handful of chopped coriander to it which tastes lovely. Thanks Canarygirl.
