In 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, in 1 tbs butter, cook onion until

Melt remaining butter. Brush 1 strip phyllo lighly with butter. Place 1
heaping teaspoon spinach filling at end of strip. Fold one corner of strip

jelly-roll pan, then store in freezer in covered container with waxed paper
between layers. To serve, preheat oven to 425 F. Remove pastries; place
