greek style pumpkin pie rolls with phyllo

This is a pie i made yesterday. I know it is not a pumpkin season, but i had to clean my freezer, so i found some packets of cooked pumpkin saved since Xmas. I had phyllo in my fridge and all the other ingredients i had in my mind that would be needed to create a pumpkin pie. So, i can say now that this new experiment was a complete success. 
Try for yourself and tell me what you think! 
These rolls are light with delicate flavor and you can have them as a snack or as a meal anytime.

1 packet of phyllo country style
5 cups of cooked in a non-stick pot pumpkin squares (with a pinch of salt and fresh pepper)
1 egg
5 tbsp greek yoghurt for tzatziki (strained) 2% fat
200 gr feta cheese with less fat (or full fat according to taste, i used feta light)
some melted butter or margarine

grease a big oven pan and preheat oven to 180 C.
in a big bowl add the cooked pumpkin pieces, the egg, feta, and yoghurt with salt and freshly ground pepper.
take 1 phyllo, brush it well with melted butter and put about 3 tbsp of filling and put it in alongside on the smaller length of phyllo.
start rolling till the other side so you form a pipe like tube with filling.
continue the same rolling with the other phylla making sure to brush with the butter the areas that are not greased, placing the the one next to the other.
when all the phylla are rolled and ready brush them with melted butter and put them in the oven.
bake for an hour or so, or till the rolls are golden brown.
