I liked what I made after seeing this recipe and making changes after reading reviews, but what I made bares little resemblance to the original recipe and the couple complaints I have would just be compounded if I had followed the original, hence the poor rating I give this recipe. I halved the recipe, substituted Italian cheese mix for the mozzarella and processed cheese, sauteed a couple cloves of garlic in a small amount of butter instead of using garlic powdered did not put any butter in the spinach mixture only used a little melted butter on the phyllo dough and only used about half of the phyllo dough. I used two or three pieces of phyllo dough per layer and made three layers of dough with two layers of spinach mixture. The end result is very heavy even after only using a small amount, maybe 2 Tbsp, of butter and a reduced fat cheese. It is also not very filling; as a main dish and my boyfriend and I ended up eating the entire thing instead of stretching it out for two meals like I was expecting. I imagine using a full cup of butter only adds to the heaviness and does nothing to make the recipe more filling. Overall, I like the idea of spinach casserole but will keep looking for a recipe that better fits my needs.
