I’ve been making spanakopita for years. The crusty filo dough is the perfect delivery system for this Greek spinach and cheese mixture. You can also ditch the filo and warm up the spinach and cheese mixture into rolled zucchini strips, eggplant or use as a side dish to any meal. spanakopita
1/2 cup ricotta
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 10oz package of chopped spinach
1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped fine
1/2 sauteed onion in olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp dill
2 tbsp olive oil
1 package filo dough (found in frozen dessert section at your grocery store)
Mix all ingredients except the filo dough and the olive oil in a bowl. Sprinkle about 1/4 tsp of salt over mixture. Fold a filo dough sheet in half length wise. Put a couple tablespoons of the mixture at the top of the filo dough about 1.5 inches from the top. Fold the mixture in the filo dough into triangles as shown in the pictures above. Brush olive oil all over your filo triangle and put on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes.
An alternative would be to put filo dough at the bottom of a 8″x8″ square pan and at the top, brushing olive oil over each filo dough sheet. Bake for 40 minutes 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
