      Wonderful! Like that it is made low fat but still has plenty of flavor with a nice crunchy top. Made using 1/2 an onion and no chicken broth. Also used fat free cheddar cheese and fresh spinach. Made a nice lunch served with sliced tomatoes and fallowed by a nice fruit salad. Thanks for the post.

      This was my first time working with phyllo pastry. Was a little worried at first but this was easy to put together and tasted so good. I used frozen spinach that I thawed in the microwave and let drain. Next time I will add some chopped tomatoes too. A definite keeper!

      I made this again and figured out the Weight Watcher points for it. I also ommited the olive oil by using olive oil spray. The TOTAL dish is 22 points. Divide it in 2 for a hefty dinner...or in 4 and have some salmon on the side!!
