Spanakopita (Greek Greens Pie )

Spanakopita (Greek Greens Pie ) created by Kathy228

Not entirely authentic - but very good. A combination of mustard greens and spinach is delicious. Layering the phyllo dough isn't difficult once you get into it. IMPORTANT: As you work, keep the phyllo pkg covered with a damp towel so it won't dry out.
