Spanakopita is a classic Greek savory pie consisting of a comforting spinach and feta cheese filling sandwiched between flaky layers of paper thin phyllo dough.  My Greek Orchard Extra Virgin Olive Oil not only adds a robust Greek flavor profile that is unique to MGO, but the olive oil is vital to keeping the multiple layers of thin phyllo dough moist so it doesn't dry out and break before you can get it filled and in the oven! Our Spanakopita recipe is both elegant and impressive, yet easy to make.This versatile recipe can be made as an appetizer, week-night meal, or for an elegant soiree. the possibilities don't end there either. The presentation of the pie is limited only to ones imagination!
