Number of Servings: 12

8 Sheets frozen phyllo dough
1/4 Cup(s) Butter, melted
1/4 Cup(s) Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 Cup(s) Onion, chopped
1 Teaspoon(s) Fresh rosemary, snipped
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Dried rosemary, crushed
1 Tablespoon(s) Olive oil
5 Ounce(s) Frozen chopped spinach
5 ozs is 1/2 of 1 package
of spinach
1/3 Cup(s) Toasted pine nuts or walnuts
1 Egg
1 Cup(s) Ricotta cheese
1/2 Cup(s) Feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 Cup(s) Oil pack sundried tomatoes
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Coarsely ground pepper
For crust: generously grease the bottom and sides of a 9" springform
pan. Unfold phyllo; cover with plastic wrap or a damp towel to keep
from drying out. On a dry working suface, place one sheet of phyllo;
brush with butter. Top with another sheet of phyllo, brush with butter
and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese. Repeat with
remaining phyllo sheets, butter & Parmesan. Using kitchen shears, trim
phyllo into an 11" circle. Ease phyllo evenly into the prepared pan,
pleating as necessary and being careful not to tear the phyllo. Cover
pan with damp towel; set aside. For filling: cook onions and rosemary
in olive oil in a medium saucepan until onions are tender. Stir in
spinach and pine nuts (or walnuts). Spread in the phyllo lined
springform pan. Set aside. Lightly beat egg in a medium mixing bowl.
Stir in ricotta, feta, tomatoes, and pepper. Carefully spread over
spinach mixture. Sprinkle with the 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese.
Place springform pan on a shallow baking pan on the oven rack. Bake
in a 350 oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until center appears nearly set
when shaken. Cool tart in springform pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
Loosen sides of pan. Cool 15 to 30 minutes more. Before serving,
remove sides of the springform pan. Serve warm. Makes 12 appetizer
servings. Posted to FOODWINE Digest 20 October 96 Date: Mon, 21 Oct
