    echo echo's Note:

    This Greek cheese pie is best served warm. The amount of butter used is approximate--use enough to coat top of each sheet of phyllo. Unlike baklava or some other dishes made with phyllo, it is not sweet so I serve it as a side dish during the main course, rather than as a dessert. Very rich, so for most people it takes a relatively small portion to make one serving.

      very good, I have made something similar to this in the past using ricotta cheese, with this recipe I combined the two together and also added in 2 cloves crushed garlic and lots of fresh ground black pepper, you could also make this into a sweet Tiropitta by adding in sugar and fresh berries, thanks for sharing echo, we enjoyed this!
