Preheat oven to 400 F. In small bowl, with fork, mix feta cheese, minced parsley, olive paste and egg whites until thoroughly blended. On lightly floured surface, unfold 1 pastry sheet (keep other sheet refrigerated), With floured rolling pin, roll pastry sheet into 16" by 14" rectangle. Cut pastry crosswise in half. Spread half of olive mixture evenly over 1 pastry half; top with remaining pastry half. With rolling pin, gently roll over pastry layers to seal them together. Grease large cookie sheet. With large chef's knife, cut pastry rectangle crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide strips, taking care not to tear pastry. Place pastry strips, about 1 inch apart, on cookie sheet, twisting each strip 3 or 4 times. Bake strips 12 to 15 min, until pastry is puffed and lighly browned.
