I love spanakopita, but it's too much work. This is a great way to make spanakopita for a crowd. And it's really yummy, too! Just remember the filo has to be defrosted overnight or for 5 hours before assembling.

    This is an awesome and easy Spanikopita recipe. We served this along with Mediterranean Chicken, Greek Salad, and Seafood Avgolemono soup. A great combination!
