Herbed Feta and Spinach
Phyllo Triangles


Spanakopita, pronounced "span-uh-koh-pih-tuh," is a versatile Greek pastry which may be frozen ahead of time. There is no need to thaw the pastries before baking.

    1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
    6 ounces herbed garlic feta cheese
     cup finely chopped yellow onion
    teaspoon dried oregano
    1 teaspoon dried parsley
    1 (16-ounce) package phyllo dough thawed in refrigerator
    cup butter, melted

1.  Open the phyllo dough package and unroll the pastry sheets.
     Keep the pastry covered with plastic wrap and a damp
     kitchen cloth to prevent the edges drying out.

2.  Mix spinach, feta, onion, oregano and parsley in a bowl.

3.  Lay one piece phyllo dough at a time on a large breadboard.         
     Brush 1 third lengthwise with melted butter. Fold in thirds so
     you end up with 1 long strip.

4.  Place a tablespoon of spinach mixture at one end and fold one
     corner of strip diagonally over filling. Continue folding over
     at right angles until you end up with a triangle shaped pastry.
     Place on a baking sheet.

5.  Bake in a preheated 350
oven for 20 minutes.

     Party-size plate for 10-12 guests
