Spinach, Fetta and Bolognaise Pie

This is a layered pie that started life out as a throw together of leftovers when a friend unexpectedly showed up for dinner some years back. I had a bit of bolognaise left over from the night before and the rest were handily in the fridge. It was such a hit that it got requested often from friends as word spread around. I'm just glad it's easy to do - and cheap : )
