Great flavor! It takes sometime to prepare, so plan ahead. I tired to make this lower fat by using fat free cheeses and light butter. It tasted good, but I think next time I will use the full fat products and I might increase the cheese. My phyllo fell apart a little as I was putting everything together. I also used fresh spinach and mushrooms. I didn't have dry vermouth so I used sweet vermouth instead. Overall, this was great and I will make again.

This recipe was fantastic. I wouldn't change a thing. I had never worked with phyllo before and that was challenging, but totally worth it. Thanks for posting this. I can't wait to serve it to guests.
