   Spinach Feta Strudel
   
   Remove packages of strudel leaves from the refigerator
   at least 3 hours before using.  Wash the spinach in
   several changes of water.  Dry it and cut into 2-inch
   lengths. Cook it in oil till wilted. Drain. Brown the
   onions in butter. Mix the onions, eggs, scallions,
   cheese, dill and parsley.  Add the spinach and season
   with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 350 F.  Butter
   two 8 X 8 X 2-inch pans. Cut 2 strudel leaves into 6
   squares each by cutting into thirds lengthwise and in
   half across (keep the remaining strudel leaves covered
   to prevent drying). Place 1 of the squares in the
   prepared pan and brush with melted butter. Repeat with
   the remaining 11 strudel sqaures, placing each on top
   of the last. Spread with half of the spinach-cheese
   filling and cover with 12 more strudel sqaures,
   brushing each with butter. Repeat the process with the
   remaining ingredients for a second pan. With a sharp
   knife, cut through the top to mark it into 2-inch
   squares.  Bake 1 hour or till brown and very puffy.
   Cut into squares and serve hot.
