Grandma’s Pasta and Cheese Pie step by step

  1. Start with the phyllo dough. Mix flour, salt, water, olive oil and vinegar in a large bowl and knead until nice and soft. Cover and set aside to rest..
  2. Boil the pasta in plenty of water generously salted for 6-7 minutes. Drain and put back in the pot..
  3. Add the milk, the eggs slightly beaten and the feta cheese in large chunks. Break the feta into chunks using your hands. Give them a good stir. Set aside..
  4. Separate your dough in 5 equal portions. Using a rolling pin roll your phyllo with the aid of some corn flour. The starch in the cornflour will help you roll your phyllo nice and thin..
  5. Grease a baking tray generously with some olive oil and add the first phyllo, drizzle with some olive oil and then add the second phyllo. Drizzle again and add the third phyllo. Then add the filling, spread evenly and level the surface..
  6. Cover with the two remaining phyllos never forgetting to drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle the surface of your pie with some water. Pop it into a preheated oven and bake for at least an hour in 180oC. Make sure your phyllo is nice and gold. Your pie should be ready if it shakes in the baking tray when you twist it left and right..
  7. Set it aside and let it cool down a little bit before serving..
  8. In case you find it challenging to roll your own phyllo you can use ready made phyllo or even puff pastry. Yet with puff pastry you will not have the exact same taste, and of course you will end up with even more calories 😁..
