    Mirj's Note:

    I have a good friend whose family comes from Syria, and they make this almost every week for Saturday night supper. It's very comfort-foody.

      As I used a rectangular baking pan, I just folded the phyllo sheets in half and only used half as many as indicated and a good deal less butter. I used muenster cheese, but perhaps should have used gruyere for a more assertive cheese flavor. This was tasty--I think some dill would have been a very nice addition as well.
