Spanakopita - Spinach & Cheese Triangles


1 pkt of phyllo sheets (thawed)

For the filling

3 cups of spinach washed & chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 onion (finely chopped)
1 tsp Italian seasoning ( a blend of thyme, oregano, basil & other herbs)
1/2 cup feta cheese (crumbled)
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
salt & pepper to taste


To prepare the filling: Heat some oil in a pan. Saute the minced garlic for 2-3 mins. Add the chopped onions & saute for a few more mins.

Add the chopped spinach. Cover & cook for a few mins till the spinach has wilted. Add the italian seasoning, salt & pepper & turn off the heat.

Remove completely from heat before adding the feta & ricotta cheese. Fold the cheese in to the spinach mixture.

Now to make the triangles....

Carefully open up the thawed phyllo sheets.

Take one sheet & spread it out onto a greased space or cutting board. Spray with some cooking spray. Fold with the bigger side of the sheet into 1/3rd.

Place 1 tsp of filling on one end of the folded sheet. Cover with the phyllo sheet to form a triangle.

Now fold upwards to form another triangle. Repeat this till you reach the end of the phyllo sheet.

Grease the end with some cooking spray & fold onto the triangle to seal the edges.

Place the triangles on a greased baking sheet. Spray with some cooking spray.

Bake in a 350F preheated oven for 20 mins till it is golden brown.

Serve warm.
