Spinach and feta pie
- 1 onion thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3/4 lb fresh spinach chopped
- 1 clove garlic finely chopped
- 3 eggs lightly beaten
- 1 cup feta cheese rinsed, drained and diced
- 3/4 cup 15% cream
- 6 sheets phyllo dough
- 1/4 cup butter melted
- Salt and pepper
With the rack in the lowest position, preheat the oven to 190 °C (375 °F).
In a large skillet, brown the onion in the oil. Add the spinach and garlic and sauté until the spinach has wilted. Season with salt and pepper. Drain in a sieve. Set aside.
In a bowl, combine the eggs, cheese, and cream. Add the spinach mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
On a work surface, overlay six sheets of phyllo, rotating each 1/6 of a turn and brushing each sheet with butter.
Move the prepared phyllo sheets to a 23-cm (9-inch) pie plate. Pour the spinach mixture into the pastry and fold and crumple up the dough onto the filling. Brush with butter. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.
You can serve this pie with tomato or marinara sauce.
