"This recipe came from my mother, but reminds me of Spanakopita, a dish I ate in Greece. It can be frozen for up to 1 month."

  1. LOVED IT! Made this for Christmas and it was very well received. I doubled the amount of feta and ricotta, otherwise made per recipe. Having made spinach pie with phyllo in the past, I have to say that I really prefered this, both for ease of making and for the pie itself. Thank you for posting a keeper Naomi!
  2. This was absolutely delicious! I would give it 5 stars except that no where on the recipe does it say what to do with the mint and parsley. Because I am a pretty experienced cook, I could figure out that it went into the filling. However, an inexperienced cook may wonder or leave it out and that would kill the recipe. However, if you read this review and add the mint and parsley, you will have a 5 star tasting recipe.
  3. This was very easy to make and tasted very good for the amount of effort required (which wasn't much). I made only one pie in a 2 litre pyrex dish using 2 sheets of pastry and the pie ended up about 2cm thick. This size pie would give 4-6 serves. I used 180g feta and 250g ricotta as these were the smallest amounts I could buy. When I initially added only half the ricotta (125g), the filling looked too dry, so I added the rest of the tub. I will make this one again.
  4. Yum! I made one big slab pie. And even though I used around 1.5 times the ingredients I don't think I'll get more than 8 serves out of it if I'm lucky! My first tasting piece had me going straight back for more. The other recipes I've had for spanakopita used different spices, but these work perfectly. I used a teaspoon of dried herbs instead of the fresh.
  5. Very good, quick and easy. Tastes like spanakopita, but easier to assemble. I'll definitely make this again.


I live in Australia, and love to cook summery recipes that are relatively healthy. I don't believe in 'diet food' though- it has to taste great.
