 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       lb           Spinach, finely chopped
    1       tb           Salt
    1       x            Dash salt & pepper
   15       x            Sheets Filo dough
      1/2   lb           Butter, melted
 
   Wash spinach and chop very fine.  (3 10 oz bags may be used in place of
   loose spinach).  Sprinkle spinach with 1 tb. salt and allow to stand 15
   minutes.  Squeeze spinach to remove excess moisture.  (This is an
   important step in making a good filling>)  Combine with cheese, onion,
   eggs, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.
   Arrange 9 filo, which have been brushed with butter, in a greased pan
   (10 x 15"), each filo having been brushed separately.  Cover with spinach
   filling.  Cover with 6 filo overall, brushing each with melted butter.
   Seal edges to retain filling.  Brush top with melted butter.  Bake at 350
   for 45 minutes.
