Ingredients

    250g pack of Filo pastry (approx 15 sheets)
    1 egg
    200 grams feta cheese
    2 medium onions (finely chopped)
    2 small or 1 large butternut squash, cubed
    200 grams frozen/fresh spinach, chopped
    2 tbsp Parsley
    2 tbsp Basil
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Boil squash until soft. Drain and let cool. Add spinach, onion, feta and all herbs. Mash and mix until well combined. Set aside.

Count number of filo sheets (a 250g box generally has approx 16 sheets) Divide filling into same number portions. Lay filo on clean dry board, fold in half and then add filling portion onto one end. Fold sheet into triangles until all sides of the pastry is sealed (so filling can't fall out). Place into a pre-greased oven tray, and brush top with some raw egg.

Repeat for each portion, then bake in a medium oven (GasMark 4) for approx 40 minutes or until top is browned.

Serve hot or cold. Tip: pastries are easier to remove from tray once they have cooled a little.
