Spinach & Ricotta Pastries

This is honestly the most easiest ting in the world to make & it is suppppper delicious! I am an advocate for simple recipes πŸ™‚

These spinach & ricotta pastries took about 40 mins in total to make (10 mins prep, 30 mins to cook) & afterwards, I couldn’t wait to eat them – they were just great! (Call me Chef Anita!)

Below is the recipe:

  1. scrummy; and thanks for the follow. I wonder if you thought of enabling comments on your about page so people like me who come over to say thanks for the follow have a place to put it rather than interrupt those commenting on a specific post. Not essential and up to you of course but a fair few bloggers seem to do it.
