      Title: Spanokopita greek spinach & cheese pie
 Categories: Appetizers, Greek, Mc
      Yield: 8 Servings
 
 
        2 lb fresh spinach
        1 lb filo dough
      1/2 lb feta cheese
        7    eggs
        1    onion -- diced
  
  Dice the onion and saute it until golden brown.  While the onion is
  cooking, wash the spinach. Put it in a bowl and rub lots of salt into
  it. Let the spinach/salt sit for 15 minutes. This is meant to reduce
  the volume of spinach. An alternative to this is to barely steam the
  spinach (30-60 seconds).  Beat the eggs. Crumble the feta cheese and
  add to the eggs. (Note that feta cheese is fairly salty.You can
  replace half or all of it with ricotta cheese.)  Rinse all the salt
  out of the spinach. Add it and the onions to the eggs/cheese and mix.
  Also add some spices. The original recipes calls for salt, pepper,
  and oregano.I use basil. Melt some butter (at least 2 oz .)  Butter
  the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Lay the filo down one layer at
  a time, brushing butter on each layer. Turn each successive layer a
  little so they are not all piled directly on top of each other. The
  filo will hang over the sides of the dish. Continue until you have
  3-5 sheets of filo left. Pour the filling into the filo. Fold the
  filo that hangs over the side over the filling. Place the last pieces
  of filo on top, buttering each as you go. Trim off the filo that
  hangs over the edge of the dish. These last pieces serve to cover the
  filling. Make two or three slits with a knife in the top layers of
  filo that go all the way down to the filling. Bake at 375 for 50
  minutes. I searched high and low for the perfect spanakopita. This
  was darn near perfection. This recipe is from the Vegetarian Epicure
