Our vegetable garden is blessed with an abundance of greens right now and my favorite way to use them up is in this easy Spinach and Cheese Pie, inspired by a traditional Greek "Spanakopita". Surprisingly my children who don't usually eat their "greens" really love eating this Spinach and Cheese pie, so hopefully yours will too?.

Take a large baking dish, grease and line with 5 sheets of fillo. Brush every second sheet with melted butter.
Cover pastry sheets with spinach/greens, then cover spinach/greens with the egg and cheese mixture. Cover with remaining 5 fillo pastry sheets. Brushing each layer with melted butter. Fold over fillo sheets to make a tidy edge.
