I made this for supper tonight. I've never made it before so I just made it up as I went along. It turned out deliciously!!

5 sheets of phyllo, cut in half (10 pieces)
1 pkg. frozen spinach, thawed and drained of excess water
1/2 c. crumbled feta
2 eggs
1 tbsp. thyme
1 tbsp. minced garlic
S & P to taste
1 can of mushroom pieces, drained
1/3 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 red onion, diced
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
Olive oil or melted butter

Preheat oven to 350.

Sautee red onion until tender. Add garlic. Remove from heat.

Combine feta, eggs, S & P and thyme. Mix well. Add mushrooms, garlic and onion and spinach, with as little excess moisture as possible. Add parmesan cheese and mix.

Lightly grease bottom and sides of 8" x 8" baking pan. Lay one piece of phyllo down. Brush with olive oil or melted butter. Repeat 5 times. After 5 sheets, fill the pan with spinach & feta mixture. Top with shredded mozza. Do 4 more layers of phyllo, remembering to brush the top with olive oil as well.

Bake for 20-25 mins. at 350. So flaky and delicious! Really easy too.
