DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Drain spinach, using a paper towel squeeze all moisture out.
  • Saute onion in a bit of olive oil until golden brown.
  • Drain cottage cheese.
  • Chop up or crumble cheeses.
  • In a large bowl mix cheeses, spinach, onion, eggs and dill. Set aside.
  • Remove half the phyllo from the package. Cover with damp cloth. Lay one sheet of dough in a 9X13 baking dish, brush with melted butter. Repeat until the half of the dough has been used. Pour on the spinach/cheese mixture and level with spatula. Top with remaining half of the phyllo dough, brushing each sheet with butter.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and 'puffy'.
  • Cut and serve. This is for main course, you can also do in small triangles of dough for an appetizer, but that's too much work for me!
  • This freezes very well.
