    This is from Cooking Light. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks really good and hopefully is a good substitute for the higher calorie version.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 20

    Yield:

    pies

    Units: US | Metric

    For the Filling

    For the Remaining Ingredients

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      To prepare filling, place spinach in a large skillet or Dutch oven. Place over medium heat; cook until spinach wilts. Place the spinach mixture in a colander, pressing until barely moist. Combine the spinach and cheeses in a bowl; set aside.
    3. 3
      Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the green onions; sauté for 2 minutes or until soft. Stir the green onions and the next 5 ingredients (green onions through 2 egg whites) into spinach mixture.
    4. 4
      Combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1 egg white in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Working with 1 phyllo sheet at a time, cut each sheet lengthwise into 4 (3 1/2-inch-wide) strips; lightly brush phyllo sheet with egg mixture (cover the remaining phyllo dough to keep it from drying). Spoon about 1 tablespoon spinach mixture onto one end of each strip. Fold one corner of the opposite end over mixture, forming a triangle; keep folding back and forth into a triangle to the end of strip.
    5. 5
      Place triangles, seam sides down, on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden.

      I am not going to rate this as it was a complete disaster for me. I apparently know even less about phyllo than I thought, so this is not the chefs fault. I will certainly come back to this recipe when I figure out the 'ins & outs' of phyllo and can make it properly. The filling was very good, and smelled wonderful cooking.

      This is very similar to my short cut spanakopita recipe where I do it in a casserole - I prefer doing it like yours but it does take longer. Love the cottage che. These freeze so well I made the whole recipe Thanks for a lovely Sunday appetizer
