  • 1 package (16 oz) frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Butter or olive oil for brushing


1. Prepare the Filling: In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion and minced garlic, sautΓ© until fragrant. Add chopped spinach and cook until wilted. Remove from heat and let it cool. In a mixing bowl, combine cooled spinach, crumbled feta cheese, ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped dill, chopped parsley, beaten eggs, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create a delicious filling.

2. Layer the Phyllo Dough: Preheat your oven to 375Β°F (190Β°C). Lay a sheet of phyllo dough on a clean surface and brush it with melted butter or olive oil. Place another sheet on top and repeat the process until you have about 5 layers. Spread a portion of the spinach and cheese mixture along one edge of the layered phyllo dough.

3. Roll and Shape: Carefully roll the phyllo dough over the filling, creating a log-like shape. Continue rolling until you’ve used up all the dough and filling. Place the rolled spanakopita on a baking sheet with the seam side down.

4. Bake to Perfection: Brush the top of the spanakopita with more melted butter or olive oil. Bake in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes or until the phyllo dough is golden brown and crispy.

5. Serve and Delight: Once the spanakopita is beautifully golden and fragrant, remove it from the oven. Allow it to cool slightly before slicing it into portions. Serve the Delicious Spanakopita warm, accompanied by a fresh Greek salad for a truly authentic experience.
