Substitutions used with success:
* Picture indicates half recipe in 8 X 8 dish,
* 2 boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained,
* Have used 1 - 1 1/2 sticks butter in spinach mix instead of 2,
* Have used 1/2 stick butter for buttering phylo leaves instead of 1, and,
* Have used cooking spray in past instead of butter all together when buttering phylo leaves(not as good, but okay).

Popeye was on to something... Spinach can pack a pretty tasty punch! This spinach pie recipe may look like fancy once it hits the table, but it's relatively easy to prepare... and well worth the effort. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
