Manitaropita / Greek Mushroom Pie

I told my cousin in Canada that I made Spanakopita  recently. Then she suggested this Manitaropita which is is similar to the Spanakopita recipe. She said that she had some frozen Manitaropita which is made mushroom and feta cheese in some wine sauce. I did this Manitaropita in my own style and that too tasted good. Here is the recipe for this easy and tasty snack.
