Add about a cup of ricotta, about a cup of feta, mix well and set aside. Thaw filo in the fridge overnight. Melt butter and mix some olive oil with it. now brush the bottom of the pan, add one layer, brush with butter, keep adding layers (around 8-10 layers). Spread the filling. Repeat 8-10 layers again.
