What you need:
- 1 box frozen chopped spinach
- 2 handfuls of grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (I use the light version)
- 1 small package of soft, herb goat cheese (any pre-packed cheese in the dairy isle of supermarket will do)
What to do:
- Preheat oven according to directions on Crescent Rolls container
- Defrost the spinach in the microwave and drain the excess water. To get it completely dry, one trick is to use a kitchen towel. Just put the spinach in the kitchen towel and wring it out over the sink. You will get every last drop.
- Flour a hard, cool surface -- either a baking sheet or counter top
- Carefully pop and unwrap the dough from the packaging, unrolling it lengthwise and laying it out horizontally or "landscape" direction
- Using the tips of your fingers, gently push together the dotted edges so that it forms a uniform sheet of dough. You can use a floured rolling pin to help this process, but it doesn't have to be perfect.
- Take the cheese and spread it out on the dough.
- Sprinkle spinach all over the top.
- Layer a handful of the grated cheese on top.
- Roll the dough lengthwise into a long log. Roll the log out a bit skinnier with your fingertips and then slice into even pieces, about a half inch thick.
- Lay each little circle pinwheel on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
- Sprinkle the rest of your cheese on top.
- Bake according to package directions or until light, golden brown.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.
