  3. In a large bowl mix together spinach, pepper, onions & garlic, fresh parsley, feta and parmesean cheese and eggs. Set aside.
  4. lay phyllo dough out on a board and cover with a damp cloth to keep it from drying out. Layer 10 pieces of phyllo dough brushing each layer with melted butter.
  5. Gently spread spinach mixture over the phyllo dough.
  6. layer 10 pieces of phyllo dough over spinach brushing each layer with melted butter. Cut spanakopita into 8 slices before you bake it.
  7. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Brush top with a beaten egg yolk in the last five minutes of baking.
  8. Let stand for 15 minutes and serve.
