Sfogliatine with Mushrooms, Spinach and a Grated Ricotta Salata

Tasty, crumbly, and delicious.

Sfogliatine with mushrooms and spinach is a flavorful dish that is easy to prepare.

Today, we offer you a recipe based on mushrooms, spinach, and salted ricotta, but you can try it with other variations of grated cheese or even vegan sfogliatine.

The mushroom and spinach puff pastries will enrich the variety of your appetizer list.

A roll of puff pastry and a few minutes is needed to prepare this delicacy.

The procedure for forming rectangles or squares with puff pastry is the same as that I showed you when I prepared the puff pastries with cherry tomatoes and ricotta.

This time, we first cook the puff pastries, and then, when they are cooked, we put the mushroom and spinach dressing over each puff pastry. If you use frozen puff pastry, I recommend that you slowly defrost it in the fridge and take it out only when ready.

Description

Sfogliatine with mushrooms and spinach is a flavorful dish that is easy to prepare.

Ingredients
  • 1 pkg puff pastry (thawed in the refrigerator)
  • 6 ounces cremini mushrooms
  • 10 ounces spinach
  • 1 garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons ricotta salata cheese (grated)
  • extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
    • Cut the puff pastry into squares of 10x10cm (4×4 inches) or 7×12 cm ( 3×5 inches); with a knife, draw the center of your squares; this helps you fill well only the center of your square of puff pastry.
    • Using a fork, dock the inside of the pastry (do not dock the border). This will prevent the inside from rising as high as the sides.
    • Brush with a beaten egg but only the outer edge of the puff pastry square.
    • Bake at 425°F (218°C)(center rack) for 20 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown.
    • Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and allow to cool slightly.
    • In the meantime, prepare the mushrooms and spinach when the puff pastries are in the oven.
    • In a pan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and a clove of garlic. As soon as they start to fry, add the cleaned and cut mushrooms.
    • Add the spinach you previously sautéed in the pan when the mushrooms are half cooked and season with salt and pepper.
    • Cook for another 5 minutes so that everything is flavored.
    • Remove the garlic.
