Spanakopita Creamed Spinach Recipe: The Greek Way to Cream Spinach

Spanakopita is a flaky Greek pie that's made with spinach and feta cheese. The flavors are a classic combination. When I saw a recipe for spanakopita creamed spinach (I love creamed spinach!), it had to happen. Creamy spinach with garlic, onion, cream cheese and feta? How could it not be delicious.

This creamed spinach recipe is a winning side dish for weeknight dinners or your holiday menus. If you want to fancy it up a bit, pour it into a baking dish, top with some buttered panko or breadcrumbs and bake until lightly browned.
