      excellent. i layered about 7 sheets on bottom and about 10 on top. the more phyllo the better. i added garlic to the onions. and didnt have any cottage curd so i used a cup and a half of feta.
      i strained the spinach after i cooked it.
      bf said it was the best he has had and he is greek!

      YAY!!! I loved much better than the spinach pie you get at the dinner, lighter and crispier...the fresh spinach really makes a big difference!! My first time working with phyllo pastry and a great introduction - so straight forward and what I had thought was going to be difficult was quite easy...AND YUMMY :) The only thing I did other than stated was to add fresh chopped garlic (a MUST in most recipes in my house...) is hearty, healthy and filling... also wonderful toasted up (rewarmed) as leftovers...this brought me back to my days just after college when my landlady owned a Greek Restaurant and brought me over her dishes occasionally -(usually as a bribe of some sort...after my apartment had flooded or something (LOL) ='s love :) ) I am so happy to be able to make something so good myself now - THANKS Bergy
