Even though it takes a little bit of work, the result is worth it. It’s so good! This Deep-Dish Spinach Phyllo Pie by Lisa Dawn Angerame calls for two pounds (907 g) of fresh baby spinach, which looks like a lot but wilts 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.
