Spinach and Ricotta Rolls

Makes 10

Ingredients

250g frozen spinach
2 spring onions or ½ a brown onion
200g reduced fat ricotta cheese
60g reduced fat feta cheese
¼ cup parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic
2½ sheets reduced fat puff pastry
1 egg

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Thaw spinach and squeeze out excess moisture. Roughly chop spring onions.
  3. Beat egg and set aside.
  4. Add spinach, ricotta, feta, parmesan, spring onions and garlic to a food processor. Process on high for 1 minute or until all ingredients are well combined and the mixture is smooth.
  5. Cut pastry sheets in quarters. Place 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture down the centre of the pastry sheets. The mixture should resemble a log shape.
  6. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the egg down one edge of the pastry sheet. Roll up to enclose filling and brush the top with the remaining egg.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
