Directions

  1. Steam the spinach until just wilted.
  2. In a medium skillet heat the oil until hot and saute the onions and mushrooms. Stir together with the spinach.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs well. Stir in the ricotta, feta, and basil.
  4. Butter a deep dish pie pan. Place a sheet of phyllo on the bottom of the pan, and brush melted butter over the sheet. Repeat until there are 5 or 6 sheets in the pan. Spread the ricotta mixture over the phyllo. Layer 5 or 6 more sheets of filo brushed with butter on top of the cheese. Spread spinach mixture over the phyllo. Top the pie with 5 or 6 more sheets of phyllo brushed with butter. Trim dough to the edge of the pie dish.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 1 hour, or until pie is golden brown.

We liked this recipe a lot - it was tasty and had a beautiful presentation. However, the nutmeg was a bit overpowering and we will omit it next time.

Definitely needs additional spices! I also wish that it had been more mixed, instead of all the cheese and then all spinach, but that could just be me. If you're looking for a baking dish - this was a little too much for an 8 x 12 x 2 Pyrex.

I thought this was a little bland- will add more basil and parmesan next time.

MY HUSBAND LIKE THIS DISH VERY MUCH. I THINK NEXT TIME I MAKE IT I WILL NOT USE THE FILLO PASTRY. I WOULD TRY SOME OTHER CRUST. IT HAD A VERY GOOD FILLING.

Very good. I used grape tomatoes b/c I couldn't find any good looking spinach, you could use any veggies you like and it would turn out fabulous. I only baked for 45 min and it was done.

Very very good... but I have a couple of concerns with the recipe. There was no way this amount of spinach and cheese would fit into a deep dish pie plate. I figured that ahead of time (thank goodness). I ended up making it in a 2q round casserole dish. Fit perfectly. Also, I had no idea how to use phyllo dough. My bad... but all in all, I used the amount stated for each layer and still had more than half a package left. Other than those concerns, no problems with recipe. I did tweek it a little. I added garlic to the spinach, mushroom, onion saute. (used baby portabellos). Then I added about 1/4 cup of Parmesan to the cheese filling. I added a dash or two of garlic powder to the butter when I melted it. This was a heavenly dish. Husband raved and had two helpings, which he never does. Thanks so much for the recipe.
