    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • I bunch English spinach
    • 1 small onion
    • 300g ricotta cheese
    • 100g fetta cheese, diced
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • pinch nutmeg
    • pinch salt, pepper
    • 1 packet fillo pastry

    Directions

    1. Boil a large saucepan with an inch of salted water, add diced onion and whole spinach. Simmer for 12 minutes.
    2. I use a ceramic rectangular dish (10cm X 25cm). I cut the fillo pastry in half and laid fillo on the bottom, and leaving a bit of pastry overhanging the sides.
    3. Paste the olive oil on pastry, layering 2 sheets at a time until all pastry is gone.
    4. Drain the spinach, chop and add to a big bowl with beaten egg and cheeses, and spice and salt to taste. Drain excess water.
    5. Pour into the pastry-lined tin, or casserole and fold the overhanging sides to cover the filling. Rub some oil on top, and bake in a moderate oven for 25-35 minutes, or until browned and crisp. Serve with chilli sauce and sour cream if desired.
