Ingredients:  
4 pkg.s frozen spinach
1c. riccota cheese

Directions:
Directions:
Squeeze liquid out of thawed spinach. Mix in other ingredients with hands EXCLUDING the butter and filo. Let filo thaw in fridge over night. Open filo when ready. Keep a slightly damp towel over dough so it doesn't dry out. Take one sheet at a time. Lay out and brush with melted butter. Then top with another sheet and repeat to make four layers. You don't have to go crazy with butter but it has to be lightly applied on each layer. Arrange the rectangle of sheets longways horizontally. Take a knife and cut four even strips. Apply a spoonful of the mix at one end of each strip. Then fold like you are making a triangle, like the old paper footballs we made as kids. Lay on greased baking sheet. Continue until all of your mix is gone. Brush the tops with butter and bake at 375 until golden brown (about 8-10 minutes).

Personal Notes:
I made once for AG and I had all this fresh garlic to get rid of. Well, I overdid it! They were so hot with garlic that they would knock you down. So stick to the garlic powder and everyone will be fine. A mix of mushrooms and goat cheese is another option with same procedure.
