      THE BEST Spanakopita recipe we've ever had! Made a batch up and had friends over - everyones was so impressed.<br/>Don't omit anything - the dill and nutmeg may just be the secret(!) <br/>I found not near enough spinach (perhaps I didn't pack down as much as I should have) but I ended up doubling the amount of spinach. <br/>Thanks for a great recipe Christine!!

      We love Greek food at my house, so this was a sure winner with us! I followed the directions and the instructions were easy to follow to get it into the oven. We will have this more than once. Guaranteed!

      I just LOVE Spanakopita, and this was a great recipe for it. Terrifically easy-to-follow instructions, and a scrumptious end result. Like katie, I added garlic, and made this as a single pie. But individual pies would be great if elegance of presentation was important, when serving to dinner guests, for example. I'm glad to have added this recipe to my many recipes for Spanakopita. It had just the right balance of flavours. Thanks for sharing!
