  6. Layer the remaining 5 sheets of phyllo dough, brushing each with olive oil.
  7. Fold the edges of the bottom layer of phyllo dough over the spinach filling and brush with olive oil.
  8. Bake the spanakopita for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Bon appétit!
