squares (5” x 5”) phyllo dough
spinach, cooked and chopped
feta cheese, crumbled
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
spicy marinara sauce
Asiago cheese, shredded
Fresh basil, chopped for garnish
Preheat oven to 375° F. Brush each sheet of phyllo with the melted butter and layer to make 8 stacks of 4 sheets each. When stacking, rotate each sheet slightly so that the corners do not match up evenly. Cover the stacks with a damp towel or plastic wrap until you are ready to use.
In a mixing bowl, combine the spinach, feta cheese, garlic, eggs, salt and pepper. Place a portion of the spinach-feta mixture on each phyllo stack. Pull the phyllo up over the mixture and pinch it together to make a pouch. Bake the pouches until golden brown. Warm the marinara sauce and place in a shallow serving bowl or plate. Place the pouches atop the sauce and sprinkle with the Asiago cheese, black pepper and fresh basil for garnish. Serve hot.
