A simple appetizer piled high on a serving dish that your guests will absolutely love. The filling is creamy and flavorful. I love adding ricotta cheese to mellow out the feta cheese and add more creaminess. The spinach is never pre-cooked so, it tastes very fresh and moist and never soggy. Use butter in the phyllo instead of olive oil if you can. I love salted butter. Here, in the States it’s not too salty, but, you can always go for unsalted butter and salt yourself to have more control of the final product.
Trust me when I tell you that you will be very happy if you make an extra batch and freeze it.
