This version of the Greek spinach pie called spanakopita, known as banitsa in Bulgarian, layers everything on a single baking sheet rather than requiring the shaping and folding of individual pies. A filling of spinach, feta cheese, and egg is mixed together and layered between buttered sheets of phyllo dough. Then the pie is baked in the oven until the phyllo is puffed and golden. Watch Baba Luba make it herself in the latest episode of CHOW’s Cooking with Grandma video series.
