    P4's Note:

    Great brunch dish, or a light dinner entree. The better quality feta you use, the better this will taste. Use 12-inch springform tart pan or springform pan

      Awesome recipe, PetitFour! I followed the recipe to the letter, and it came out perfect. It reminded me so much of spanakopita! (one of my favorite foods). Directions were simple and accurate. This will be a regular feature on our Sunday breakfast menu! Thanks for a fabulous and easy to prepare recipe!

      This was great.. I made it for a gathering and everyone wanted the recipe.. I made a few changes, I used milk instead of half- and -half cream and yoghurt instead of heavy cream and I used a little less feta and added cottage cheese as a replacement.. I used two bags of fresh spinach (8 ounces each).. I didn't use any scallions or dill.. I used a whole onion and parsley,basil and marjoram for seasoning..
