Short cut Spanakopita

Last week of so, of Namratha had posted the recipe for spanakopita..they looked so yummy.. i simple could not resist. So i headed out to Shop and Stop determined to get phillo sheets, even though i knew phillos could be pretty tricky for a gauche person like me! Phillo are after all the princess of pastry, me a lowly, lazy bum of a cook.
However there was a surprise awaiting for me in the departmental stores. To make lives of lazy piggies like me, there are packets are pre baked pillo cups sitting in the frozen food aisles!! So go ahead people explore the product( well if i m a late entrant in discovering this product, excuse me! and welcome me aboard!!!)
So this is 'Rachel Ray' styled Greek snack!

Phillo cups 4
Spinach 1 and 1/2 cups chopped
Chilly flakes 1 pinch
Cumin ground 2 liberal pinch
Olive oil just a tad
Feta cheese 1/4 cup
mozzarella 1 tsbp

Thaw the phillo cups to room temperature. Gently heat the olive oil with the chilly flakes. When just warm, toss in the spinach. Wilt it. Mix in the cumin and a tiny pinch of salt.(can omit salt altogether because feta as well as the phillo cup are salty, but i need more!!)
When cool mix in the feta.
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Stuff the phillo cups with the spinach-feta mixture. cover the top with the mozzarella. Bake it in oven for a few minutes till the mozzarella melts.
