Spinach Pie

1/3 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup raisins
3 pounds fresh spinach or 2 pkgs frozen spinach
1 medium onion, minced
4 tablespoons olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
freshly ground pepper
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 pound feta or goat cheese, crumbled
6 ounces filo dough at room temperature
1/4 cup melted butter

Put the pine nuts in a skillet and dry-roast them until slightly
brown, shaking the pan frequently to prevent burning. Cool the pine
nuts and mix them with the raisins. Wash thoroughly and remove
tough stems from the spinach, then boil in water to cover for 2
minutes. Or thaw the frozen spinach and cook 1 minute in water to
cover. Drain well. Saute the minced onion in 2 tablespoons of
the olive oil until tender, then add the spinach and cook 2
minutes,stirring. Remove from the heat, stir in the pine nuts and
raisins, and add the lemon juice, a little salt to taste, freshly
ground pepper, the beaten eggs and the crumbled cheese. Mix well.

Butter an 8 x 10 inch baking dish and line the bottom with 5 sheets
of the thin filo dough, brushing each sheet with the melted butter
mixed with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil as each layer is
arranged. Turn the spinach-cheese mixture into the baking
dish,spreading it over the filo layers. Cover this filling with
the remaining sheets of dough,brushing each with butter and oil.
Bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove and cool. Serves 4
