      Title: Pita de spinaka (spinach pie for passover)
 Categories: Try it, Pileggi, Savory pie, Passover
      Yield: 8 Servings
 
 
  ~Jewish, Turkish
    1 1/2 lb Fresh spinach
        3    Eggs, beaten
      1/2 ts Salt
      1/8 ts Pepper
      1/4 c  Matzoh meal
        4    Sheets matzoh Water, cold
        2 tb Oil
        1 tb Walnut, chopped
  
  1.  Wash the spinach well to remove sand and drain it. Coarsely chop
  the stems and leaves.  Mix with the eggs, salt, pepper, and matzoh
  meal. Set aside
  
  2.  Moisten the sheets of matzoh with cold water, just enough to
  soften but not so much that they break up.
  
  3.  Rub a heatproof glass or metal baking dish, about 9x6x2", with
  all but 1 teaspoon of the oil.  Put 2-1/2 sheets of the moist matzoh
  ~- big enough to turn up around the edges -- on the bottom of the
  dish. Add the spinach mixture and cover with remaining 1-1/2 sheets
  of the matzoh for the pie cover.  Brush with the reserved 1 teaspoon
  of oil and sprinkle the walnuts over the top.  Bake in a preheated
  350 degrees F oven for 30 minutes.
  
  Serve warm, cut into generous squares or triangles.
  
  VARIATIONS:
  
  1.  Mix 1/2 pound ground beef with the spinach, eggs, salt, pepper,
  and matzoh meal, and proceed as above.
  
  2.  Or chop 1/4 pound farmer cheese and 1/4 pound of feta cheese. Mix
  this with the spinach, eggs, salt, pepper, and matzoh meal, and
  proceed as for the spinach pie. This cheese dish could be (but is
  not, traditionally) eaten during Passover, but it is usually prepared
  for other days.
  
  In my opinion, substituting sheets of matzoh in place of the fragile
  sheets of fillo (which are not kosher for Passover) is ingenious. It
  results in a different taste and is an admirable solution for the
  kosher kitchen.
