Spanakopita is a traditional Greek dish. Literally, it is a spinach pie made with phyllo dough, spinach and feta cheese. This can be made in a pie shape round or rectangular or in individual portion like a finger food. But today I’m making it differently a bit. I replaced the phyllo with the puff pastry and I made it in a medium ceramic pans just enough for two people at a time.
what is the difference between phyllo and puff pastry? Sure both are many layered but puff pastry and phyllo are not interchangeable. If you compared the two, phyllo would look like a sheaf of tissue paper while puff pastry would seem much thicker, more like regular pastry dough. The taste will be different too. instead of a flaky and dry texture with the phyllo, it will be more rich and buttery with the puff pastry. So you choose your own dough if you’d like.
