    Dib's's Note:

    This is a great recipe! It doubles an appetizer or as a side dish. I never know how many, exactly, come out of this recipe. Serves 6-8 as an appy, 4-6 as a side dish.

      Very nice! I did learn that I am not good at getting these to look pretty, but they were tasty. I would have liked a stronger cheese then parmesean, because I found the cheese flavor a little milder then I would like. Yummy though, and while I am not over my fear of phyllo, I am on my way!

      Thanks for suggesting these. I actually had everything in the house except for the spinach. I made these as directed and then froze them. On Party night I baked them at 250 degrees for 45 minutes. Thanks again!
