Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F. Remove pastry leaves from freezer. Let pastry leaves warm to room temperature according to directions on label. Wash broccoli, trim leaves and stem ends; discard. Split heavy stalks. With sharp knife, coarsely chop stems and flowerets. Turn into a large skillet, add 1/2 cup boiling water. Cook over medium heat, covered, 5 minutes. Drain well. In 1/4 cup hot butter in large skillet, saute chopped onion, stirring til golden, about 3 minutes. Add chopped broccoli; saute 1 minute, stirring. Remove from heat. In large bowl, beat eggs slightly. Add feta cheese, chopped parsley and dill, salt, pepper and broccoli mixture; mix well. Line inside of a 9" spring form pan, with rim in place, with 6 phyllo pastry leaves, overlapping edges; brush each pastry leaf with melted butter. Pour filling into prepared pan. Fold overlapping edges of pastry leaves over top of filling. With scissors, cut four (9") circles from remaining phyllo leaves (for guide, use 9" cake pan). Brush each circle with melted butter; then layer one over the other on top of pie. With scissors, cut through leaves to make eight sections. Pour any remaining melted butter over top. Place pan on a jelly-roll (cookie sheet with sides) pan to catch drippings. Bake 40-45 minutes or until crust is puffy and golden brown. Remove to rack; cool 10 minutes. To serve: Remove side of pan; with sharp knife, cut into wedges; remove with pie server. Serve warm.
