RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
SPINACH PIE, Greek
Wash the spinach and cut it into small pieces, also cut the parsley, green onion, and the fresh dill. Put all in a bowl, add salt, and squeeze. Strain in a colander. Grate the 3 large onions and brown in half the amount of olive oil. When the onion is golden brown, add the spinach and stir a little. Meanwhile, cook the rice slightly and add to the spinach. Brown for a few minutes. Remove from fire and add the cheese which has been broken into small pieces. Add some pepper.
Rub a rectangular baking dish with olive oil and place in it 3 or 4 pastry sheets, brushing each once with olive oil so that they do not stick together. The lower sheets should be a little bigger than the perimeter of the baking dish and should touch the sides. Then spread with 1/3 of the spinach mixture. Meanwhile, toast in the oven two pastry sheets of the exact same size as the baking dish. Place one on top of the spinach mixture. Spread another 3 sheets on top, brushing each with olive oil. Fold the ends of the sheets under and with a sharp knife, cut the upper sheets into a diamond-shaped pieces to make cutting easy later. Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees) for about 1 1/2 hours or until all the sheets are golden brown. When you take it out of the oven, cover with dish towel until cool. Cut and serve cold.
