  1. When working with phyllo pastry it is important to keep it covered with a damp towel, so that it doesn't dry out.
  2. That being said, we can begin.
  3. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  4. Line a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
  5. Prepare filling:
  6. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large sauté pan.
  7. Sauté garlic, onion and mushrooms over medium heat until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  8. Add spinach and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Sauté spinach mixture for 2-3 minutes, and then add dill and stir to combine.
  10. Transfer spinach mixture to a mixing bowl, and add lemon juice, feta and eggs.
  11. Mix well.
  12. Make spanakopita roll:
  13. Lay one sheet of phyllo pastry on parchment paper lined cookie sheet, and brush with butter.
  14. Repeat with each remaining sheet.
  15. Place filling in a log shape near one edge of the pastry, and fold sides over (like what you would do for egg rolls or burritos).
  16. Roll up the spanakopita roll, making sure the seam is at the bottom.
  17. Bake spanakopita roll 45 minutes to an hour, or until golden.
