Substitutions used with success:
* Picture indicates half recipe in 8 X 8 dish,
* 2 boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained,
* Have used 1 - 1 1/2 sticks butter in spinach mix instead of 2,
* Have used 1/2 stick butter for buttering phylo leaves instead of 1, and,
* Have used cooking spray in past instead of butter all together when buttering phylo leaves(not as good, but okay).
