mix ingredients; knead for about 2-3 minutes; adding flour to until it
doesn’t stick to the hands – separate into 3 equal parts

The filling :
————
about one pound of thawed frozen spinach- i prefer the chopped leaves kind
a couple of chopped green shallots (can replace with 1/3 white onion)
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1/3 pound feta cheese (totally optional i actually prefer it without)
salt, pepper, thyme

Mix ingredients

The assembly :
————-
– roll out the 3 dough balls- so that each one is a bit bigger than your baking pan (i use 8×12 in.)- the amount of dough, for that size will give you the right thickness

– place the first layer on the greased pan, with ends hanging over the pan rim – add half the filling

– follow on with the second dough layer -add the rest of the filling

– finish off with the last dough layer; fold the dough layers together

– pluck a few holes, making sure you go through the second layer of dough

– bake for 3/4 hour at around 400F.
