Add Havarti cheese; remove from heat and let cool for 20-30 minutes. In another medium bowl, combine spinach, ricotta cheese, 1 egg, Parmesan cheese, and basil.

  3. Unroll filo sheets and cover with plastic wrap and damp paper towel. Place one sheet in a 13x9" glass baking dish. Brush with melted butter. Add nine additional filo sheets, brushing each with butter. Spread half of mushroom/sausage mixture over dough. Layer and brush with butter ten more sheets filo dough. Spread with all of spinach/ricotta mixture. Layer and brush with butter five more sheets filo dough. Top with remaining mushroom/sausage mixture. Layer remaining five filo sheets on top, brushing each with butter. Score top of filo dough in a diamond shape.

If frozen, thaw overnight in refrigerator, then bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 60-75 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Serves 10 to 12.
