Good recipe, but I have some revisions. I've been making this for years, and I highly recommend using fresh spinach. I also only use feta cheese, about 2 cups. I believe people starting using other cheeses is to keep costs down. The only other things I put into my mix are 2 eggs, which as other users have attested really makes a difference, and a bundle of chopped scallions. If you are in a hurry, or simply don't feel like making the traditional triangular pieces. you can cook in a 9X13 baking dish. The filo dough should fit without any cutting. Layer the dough, buttering between each. I do 20 layers, then filling, then 20 more, buttering between again. Baking time and temperature remain the same. Hope this helps!
