Spanakopita is a cheese and spinach pie wrapped in phyllo. I think it’s a great first course or side dish. Serve it as a meatless entree with a green salad.
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup chopped scallion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
- 3 ounces cottage cheese
- 1 tablespoon chopped dill
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 teaspoon salt
- 8 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
- 1 stick butter, melted
Brush remaining phyllo dough with butter and place on top of spinach mixture, making sure to press the phyllo down firmly. Score the top phyllo into a triangle shaped piece and butter the top of the phyllo.
Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into triangles. Serve warm.
Yields approximately 20 triangles.
