a little greasy, but a huge hit with the guests.
Very nice and easy recipe! Instead of slicing the filo, I took one full sheet, brushed with butter and folded in half lengthwise. This made the assembly a little easier. The filling is wonder and would work well in lasagne as well.
I made these for a party and everybody loved them! Folding the triangles was a bit time consuming so I stopped before I used up all the filling. The next day for dinner, I used whole sheets of phyllo and rolled up the leftover filling like burittos. Turned out great that way too and was much easier.
