If you love phyllo and spinach, then this is one you have to try! Keep the phyllo stacked between two sheets of wax paper, and covered with a damp tea towel until ready to use to keep from drying out. You can use frozen chopped spinach in place of fresh if desired. The amounts listed for the feta and olives are only a guidline, you can use as much as desired.

Units: US | Metric
- 1 1/2 lbs freshy spinach (coarse stems removed)
- 7 tablespoons butter, melted and kept warm

- 5Put one sheet of the phyllo on the buttered baking sheet, then brush the top of the sheet with about 1 tablespoon butter (you will not need more than 7 tablespoons butter since you brushing 7 sheets of phyllo, use the butter sparingly as the phyllo will be too greasy, you might even want to use less than the 7 tablespoons!).
