Spanakopita is a favorite dish in my family and this is a very traditional recipe. The only changes I would make would be to use olive oil rather than vegetable oil and in my family, we will also add lightly toasted pine nuts which gives you the nice, nutty texture now and then, as well as a lovely marrying of flavors with the other ingredients. Also, another review may have mentioned it, though I have not read through all of them, but when working with phyllo, it is best to use a slightly damp towel to cover the dough. The directions state to use the plastic but I would fear that it would still dry out too much. Phyllo is a bit time intensive and temperamental to assemble, but it's well worth it in the end. Bravo!
