This is a recipe I created years ago. It is very elegant looking, yet so simple.

  3. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.
  4. Put a sheet of phyllo on a work suface and brush with butter.

We had a debate with this one :) As a result I am giving 4*. I used roasted red peppers from a jar and feta cheese. The family enjoyed them but the man of the house would have liked a sauce to serve over them. (Men!!!) That said, I will certainly make again and have added recipe to my keepers file. :)
