Let's Make It
Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add spinach; cook and stir 4 to 5 min. or until spinach wilts. Remove from heat. Discard any liquid from skillet; cool 5 min. Squeeze spinach to remove as much liquid as possible. Chop spinach. Mix spinach, feta, egg and pepper in medium bowl.
Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll phyllo sheets; cover with plastic wrap until ready to use to prevent drying. Place 1 phyllo sheet on clean work surface; brush lightly with butter. Top with second phyllo sheet. Using sharp knife, cut sheets crosswise into 6 (12x2-3/4-inch) strips.
Place 1 tsp. spinach mixture onto end of strip. Fold one corner of phyllo strip over filling to make a triangle. Continue folding dough until entire strip is folded into a triangular packet. Place, seam side down, on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets and filling mixture. Brush tops with remaining butter.
Bake 20 to 25 min. or until crisp and golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
Cook and stir 1/2 cup chopped red or green peppers with the spinach and onions.
Substitute baby kale for the baby spinach leaves.
Triangles can be made up to 5 days ahead. Layer with waxed paper between them, so they don't stick. Place in resealable freezer-weight plastic bags. Freeze until ready to use. Bake frozen as directed increasing bake time to 30 to 35 min.
