The hills are alive . . . Not with the sound of music, but with fabulous
wild herbs and fresh greens during Springtime in Greece. The abundance of
spring is gathered in bundles and prepared in many different varieties of
both meat and cheese pies.

year and let your guests know that the Baklava is coming soon. Everyone

Rinse and stem the spinach, chop into small pieces or tear into shreds.
Rinse again and drain well to thoroughly dry.

In a large saute pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the spinach
and chopped green onions and saute until the spinach wilts and cooks down,
approximately 5-minutes. Transfer to a sieve and drain well, chop coarsely
again and set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl mash the Feta cheese with a fork. Add the parsley,
dill or fennel and the spinach mixture to the Feta cheese and thoroughly
combine all ingredients. Brush an ovenproof 9? x 13? baking pan with olive
oil. Lay 6 Filo sheets in the pan, lightly brushing each with oil before
adding the next layer. Spoon the spinach mixture over the top of the Filo
and spread evenly. Lay 6 to 8 more Filo sheets on top, brushing each one
with oil before adding the next layer. Cover and chill for about 30 minutes
to set.

Pre-heat oven to 350-F degrees. Bake until golden, about 30-minutes. Let
cool for 5 to10-minutes to set, then cut squares and serve at once.
