We recently had a girl’s lunch and decided to make a Spanakopita Recipe aka Greek Spinach Pie. To say it was a hit is an understatement. It was so delicious and perfect with salads.

Dimitra, says it is her Mom’s recipe and hands-down better than anything she has ever tried.

Spanakopita Cooking Tips
by Dimitra’s Dishes
Dimitra’s first tip for a top result is don’t pre-cook your ingredients. She also recommends against swapping out ingredients with low-fat substitutes.
Another tip is to not remove your filo from its packaging until the last minute. You should also defrost to room temperature in your fridge.
For the last couple of hours, leave your filo out, but do not remove it from the airtight packaging.
The baking tray used for this recipe is 18 x 13 x 1″ (45 x 33 x 2.5cm)
