Cooking Directions: 

- Clean and wash the spinach meticulously, then drain it well. 
- Saute the spring onions in the olive oil on medium heat until they become transparent but not brown. Shred the spinach in large pieces and add it to the onions. Season to taste. 
- Cook for about 15 minutes over a medium fire so as the ingredients remain in the pot without any liquid; stir in the dill. 

Prepare the pastry as follows:

- Place the flour in a bowl, add the eggs, the melted butter, salt and as warmer water as is necessary for a bough that is pliable.
- Knead the dough well and roll it out in thin pastry sheets with a rolling pin. 
- Line an oiled pan with a pastry sheet, brush with olive oil, and then lay two or three pastry sheets brushing each one with olive oil again.
- Spread the filling evenly and cover it with 3-4 layers of pastry sheets oiled in the same way as previously. 
- Bake in a medium oven for about 45 minutes. 
- Cut the spinach pie into pieces and serve it either hot or cold.
