In a large bowl, combine spinach (make sure water is drained out completely, squeeze water out), cheese, eggs, Parsley, onion, and spices.


Mix with hands or with wooden spoon.


Prepare Phyllo:


In a cake pan, Overlap phyllo so it goes over the sides of the pan both long ways and short.


Use 4 sheets at a time.


Melt butter and with a pastry brush brush over phyllo on each layer.


Leave 5 phyllo sheets for top.


Fill pan with mixture, fold over sides and cover with remaining phyllo.


Cover top with melted butter.


Not too much though.


Bake in 350 until phyllo is golden brown.

Notes

I got this recipe from my former dance teacher who was Greek. This is the best I could remember, she never measured anything :)

You can make the triangles by cutting a package of phyllo in half. Use two strips at a time. With a pastry brush, brush butter over entire strip. Add Spinach mix in the corner and fold over into a triangle. Every time you fold, brush with butter. Enjoy it's my favorite.
