(In Greek cooking) a phyllo pastry stuffed with spinach and feta cheese.
- Don't miss out on the savoury pastries - you can get the spinach spanakopita in pie form, or in little spring roll-like tubes.
- Even the Greek phyllo packets - minty, feta-stuffed tiropita and spinach-stuffed spanakopita laced with onion - were on the mark.
- The spanakopitas were by far the best I've ever had - perfectly baked and crisp phyllo pastry stuffed with baby spinach, kasseri cheese (a sharp, salty, sheep's milk cheddar) and spaghetti squash.
Modern Greek, literally 'spinach pie'.
