In a bowl, use a fork to toss together the first 11 ingredients (up to and including the dill). Set aside.
On a large bake sheet sprayed lightly with cooking spray, arrange the crescent dough, separating the dough into triangles along the perforations: lay the dough triangles, overlapping slightly at the corners, so that the short end of the triangles form a circle.
Spoon the spinach filling around the circle formed by the overlapping dough triangles. Gently fold the long end of each triangle over the filling to form the ring.
Brush the dough lightly with egg white and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Bake at 375F for 20 minutes or until filling is heated through and crescent dough is browned and toasty. Slice and serve! Yields 16 portions.
