I’ve been wanting to make spanakopita for a long long time.   I love the flavours and even though I’ve already made a spinach and feta pie this year, I was quite happy to try another recipe with similarities.

Although I have wanted to make this for a long time, it was only when I saw that this month the Daring Cooks challenge was to make Spanakopita that I was given the kick I needed to actually go out and get some phyllo pastry to make it with, because that’s basically the only ingredient I don’t regularly cook with.    In fact, I think it was only the second time I’d used phyllo but from what I remember, it was much easier this time.   You do need to melt some butter and brush each of the layers, which I had always though of as being a bit of a faff, when in fact it is very quick to do.
