Even though this Deep-Dish Spinach Phyllo Pie by Lisa Dawn Angerame takes a little bit of work, the result is worth it. It’s so good! This recipe calls for two pounds (907 g) of fresh baby spinach, which looks like a lot but wilts down significantly. It also calls for all of the alliums—onions, garlic, scallions, shallots, leeks, and chives—because they each add their own flavor, lots of dill, mint, and parsley for herby freshness, artichoke hearts for tang and almond feta for texture.
