I give it 3 stars, which by definition on this site means "a good, solid recipe". It is good, yes, but definitely plain as the other reviewers have stated. I will make it again with modifications: garlic, possibly chopped preserved lemon, fresh herbs & a pinch more salt. I did not like it as well as spanikopita but I wanted to!

This a a go to recipe in our house. My 2 year old loves it. It is so much better if you cover the top of the pie with tomato slices, gives it the kick of acidity it needs.

I really like this recipe as a good go to - I usually use brown rice Has gone over well at Bunco and other gatherings I am not a big spinach fan and usually use broccoli instead The last time I made it I use ramekins for individual servings and that worked out great

My family and I love this recipe. As a matter of fact, I lost my copy of the recipe and searched high and low until I found it again on this site. I do make a few changes though. I use Pecorino Romano cheese instead of the Parmesan cheese and I use closer to a 1/4 cup. I add more onion and I add garlic and basil to give it a bit more of a zing. Oh and I use butter. It think it works.

We like this dish a lot. It goes well with a steak, with chops, or pork tenderloin. It's also a good vegetarian main dish. I use 2 whole eggs, a bit more feta and Parmesan and whatever kind of milk we have. You can play around a bit with this recipe; it always turns out well!
