    katheros's Note:

    I love this recipe for spanakopita. The cream cheese makes it extra creamy. I have only made the full-fat version, so far. I am planning on using all low-fat or fat-free cheese the next time I make it. I don't know if there would be a taste difference or not. I am also planning on layering it in a pie next time too for an entree rather than an appetizer. These can be made ahead of time and either frozen or refrigerated. Reheat in oven.

      We added a little dried mint and some lemon pepper seasoning instead of the salt & pepper. Put a little minced garlic in too. We didn't use the food processor. Just mixed it up by hand. We also used butter flavored cooking spray instead of the melted butter to cut down on the calories. They were really yummy!
