Recipe Ingredients:

1 pound bulk pork sausage
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crushed
10 (17 x 13-inch rectangle) sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
1/2 cup butter, melted
Fresh watercress (optional)
Black olives (optional)
Lemon peel twists (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a large skillet cook sausage and onion over medium-high heat till sausage is done and onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Drain. Stir in spinach, feta cheese, Parmesan cheese and oregano. Set aside.
  2. Unfold the phyllo dough; spread one sheet flat. (Keep remaining sheets covered with a damp towel.) Brush the one sheet with some of the melted butter. Top with the remaining sheets of phyllo, brushing each with some of the melted butter.

  4. Bake in a 350°F (175°C) oven for 35 minutes or till brown.
  5. Garnish with watercress, olives, and lemon peel twists, if desired.
