“Spanakopita” is the Greek name for this traditional dish featuring spinach and feta cheese. You can serve it as a side dish or meatless main dish. My dad and I used to fight over the last piece!

"I did something fun with this recipe. I took 1 lb. of ground lamb, some chopped onion and garlic....cooked and drained it. I put it UNDERNEATH this entire recipe. It turned it into a Greek Shepard's Pie. The family loved it!"

"I've made this several times and recently have substituted Greek seasoning blend for the salt and pepper. It really is good."

"This casserole is a great meatless option for dinner. I have made it a couple times and have added a bit of dill to make it more like traditional spanakopita."

"For those of you who thought this needed something, try using a flavored feta like garlic/herb or sun-dried tomato."
