Spinach and ricotta cake is a savory dish that combines the creaminess of ricotta cheese with the earthy flavor of spinach, baked into a delightful cake-like form.

One snowy winter day, my kids and my husband were snuggled on the couch, watching movies, reading, or playing.
After all that, they were famished, so I decided to cook lunch.

My imagination started flowing since it was a relaxing day, not going to work or dropping the kids at school.
I started thinking that I should prepare something that my kids had never eaten before. Since I had all the ingredients at home and frozen puff pastry is a lifesaver any time, I opted to make Spinach and Ricotta cake. The day before, I thought of making a dessert, and I let puff pastry thaw overnight.
When I finally made it, both of my kids were afraid to try it because, you know, the kids are against anything green.
My son is probably the pickiest eater in the entire family, so he didn’t like it.
My daughter thought she couldn’t have enough of it!
I don’t even think I saw her eat so much!?
