    This was very tasty! I enjoyed it for dinner but it would also make a good brunch item or side dish. The filo dough worked great for me but be careful if you reheat it in a toaster over, the filo burns easily.

    My daughter made this and brought it to me for lunch the next day, so I only had this heated up.....and it was absolutely delicious. Being anemic, the 6.1mg of iron was an extra added bonus. It's not Spanakopita, so if you are expecting that you will be disappointed, but on it's own merits it is one of the best quiche like pies I have ever eaten. Light, very tasy, and just filling enough to not be hungry afterward without feeling that queasy "fatty quiche" feeling. I will be making this for myself!!

    This is a wonderful recipe! It's really easy but looks very special and tastes delicious. I did use tomato-basil feta crumbles, some crushed red pepper, and a TB or so of fresh oregano, but otherwise followed recipe exactly. Serving size was just right, so husband and I ate half the pie for dinner and half for the next day's lunch. I served with crunchy breadsticks, a simple salad of cucumbers and red onions, and avgolemeno soup with a bit of shredded chicken added.

    This was good (reminiscent of CL Spinach and Kale Turnovers), but some of the steps seemed unnecessary. Rather than boil away the nutrients from the greens, I added them to the onion and chard stems (so as not to waste them) in the skillet, adding a bit of water to the chard and covering for a few minutes before adding the spinach. Once they were uncovered the water cooked away quickly (and otherwise helped cook the spinach). As I found that I didn't have nearly enough chard I halved the recipe and used a 7" springform pan, which worked splendidly. We ended up eating 1/2 servings (1/4 pie each) with just a warm soft pretzel on the side as we were pressed for time, but I plan to make a fennel soup to go with the rest. Overall this was very good and with the above changes I would make this again.
