Preheat the oven to 350°.
Defrost broccoli and spinach.
If fresh spinach is used, wash thoroughly, cut into coarse pieces, and set aside.
Fresh broccoli must be cooked first.
Saute the yellow and green onions in the oil until golden brown.
Add the broccoli and spinach, and cook for 5 minutes.
Stir in the cheese, eggs, chives, dill, parsley, and black pepper.
Remove from the heat to cool a bit.
Fold the phyllo leaves in half, and cut to make 24 sheets to fit an oblong baking dish (12 by 7 by 2 inches).
Using a pastry brush, butter the baking dish, and begin layering the first 12 phyllo leaves, brushing each as it is added.
Drain excess liquid from broccoli-spinach mixture, and spread it over the phyllo.
Cover with remaining 12 sheets, repeating the buttering process.
Cut the pie into 10 (or more) pieces, using a sharp, pointed knife.
Bake uncovered, for 1 hour, or until golden brown.
