    2Bleu's Note:

    If you don't like spinach, think again! I got this recipe from a Greek internet friend back in the early 90's who owns a diner out in Long Island. I made it a bit healthier by using non-stick cooking spray. Love spanakopita? try Spanakopita Breakfast Eggs :)

      This was so good! Thanks for setting up this project during our visit, otherwise I might have been scared off by the 5 boxes of spinach. You also showed that this recipe isn't fussy about the proportions of cheeses. I guess there really is no better way to get the water out of the spinach than pressing it with your hands. Some tasks just require a little bit of patience. Thank you for this keeper!

      LOVE Spanakopita; LOVED this Spanakopita. Loved the blend of cheeses and the inclusion of parsley and dill, and the fact that this was a low-fat recipe. Like KITTENCAL, I had to add garlic and I also added pine nuts as I love them with spinach and love the textural variation they provide. :) I otherwise followed the recipe exactly and wouldn't want to change a thing. Because this was so delicious, I was SO glad that I hadn't halved the recipe. We enjoyed this immensely over several nights - and for lunches. Thank you for sharing yet another super recipe. Made for PRMR.

      A winner every time! Fab-U-Lous! Made with dried parsley and dill, and mixed by hand, and even using the spray butter, it didn't miss! Oh - I also added a large clove of pressed garlic cuz that's how I roll ....
