“My father and mother survived World War II and immigrated to America. They used food and tradition to overcome their struggles and raise a healthy, joyous family. It's the good memories I have of bringing family together -- and family is of number-one importance to me.” - by momuv2dox
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Place the spinach, eggs, dill, onion, feta cheese, cottage cheese, and black pepper into a large bowl, and mix well.
- Place 2 sheets of phyllo dough into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish, and drizzle with about 1 tablespoon of olive oil; top with 2 more sheets of phyllo dough. Spread the spinach filling evenly over the sheets of phyllo, pat it down gently, and top with 2 more sheets of phyllo. Drizzle with 1 more tablespoon of olive oil, and top with the remaining 2 phyllo sheets. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the top is browned and the filling is set, about 1 hour. To serve, cut into squares and top each square with a dollop of sour cream.

"My Polish Mom used to make this for my Greek Dad - only she was of a creative turn and couldn't just follow a recipe. She would make it into individual crispy phyllo triangles and for years I thought ..." See morethat was what it should look like! Imagine my surprise at seeing a 'deep dish' version in a restaurant! Love both versions now:)"
