Ingredients
  

  • 4 tbsp Olive oil. Extra Virgin
  • 10 oz Spinach. Frozen, Washed, and Drained
  • cup Scallions. Thin-sliced
  • 4 cloves Garlic. Minced
  • ½ cup Dill. Chopped
  • Salt. To taste
  • Ground Pepper. To taste
  • 4 oz Greek Feta Cheese. Chopped, Crumbled
  • 3 Eggs.
  • 1 pound Ricotta Cheese.
  • 10 Sheets Phyllo Dough. Thawed
  • 1 pound Butter. Unsalted

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Use a medium-sized pan, heat the olive oil in the pan, and add spinach. Sauté the spinach till it gets a little soft for about 2 minutes. Spinach leaves the water, so squeeze the excess water out. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining spinach, add oil if required.
  • Heat 2 tbsp. olive oil and add scallions and garlic to the pan, sauté them for about3-4 minutes. Keep it aside till it cools down.
  • Once the scallion and garlic are sauteed properly, add salt and pepper for the seasoning of the mixture. Mix them properly.
  • Use a separate bowl, mix feta, ricotta, and eggs. Mix well.
  • Now you must combine spinach with the cheese mixture, blend well.
  • Grease the phyllo sheet dough with un-salted butter.
  • Use another phyllo sheet dough and brush it with unsalted butter. Lengthwise, fold the phyllo in half. At the lower bottom of the sheet, put ½ cup of the cheese and spinach mixture. To enclose the fillings, the corner of the phyllo needs to be folded to form a triangle. Continue to fold; just make sure to maintain the triangular shape.
  • Put the triangle-shaped pie on the baking sheet, brush the top with butter. Then, try and similarly make more triangles using phyllo.
  • Bake them in the oven for 35-45 minutes till they are properly cooked. Set them aside on the plate till they are cool.

Important Tip;

  • While you are working with phyllo, you need to be careful as it dries out. Therefore, you need to cover the phyllo stack with 2 overlapping plastic sheets along with dampened kitchen towel. Keep the extra phyllo covered so that it does not dry out.
