Spinach Ricotta Rolls: delicious and easy to prepare !
These rolls make a great appetizer. I usually prepare several batches for any afternoon gathering, as they always help to melt the ice when people are still coming in and being introduced to each other: warm, salty, sticky and creamy, they are popular with both adults and children. They are also very easy to make, especially if you decide to use frozen spinach and store-bought puff pastry.

If you use frozen, already chopped spinach, fry it in a small pan until it melts, let it cool, then spread it over the cheese layer.
I like to eat these rolls at any time of the day, which made it difficult for me to define the right category for them, because I quite often make a batch for a quick lunch or a weekday dinner. There is always some spinach in the freezer for that reason! I really hope you will enjoy this dish as much as I do.
