Spinach and Roasted Red Pepper Pastry Roll-Ups

Here's another recipe that looks like your spent a ton of time on, but really all you need is a box of Tenderflake Puff Pastry!  Super easy!  This is a little bit like spanakopita, but I lightened it up on the feta, used some cottage cheese and added roasted red peppers.

Spinach & Roasted Red Pepper Pastry Roll-Ups
4 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 large egg
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup roasted red pepper, finely diced
1/2 pkg Tenderflake Puff Pastry
salt & pepper
flour for surface and rolling pin
1 tbsp egg-whites

Preheat oven to 425degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Pile spinach into a microwave-safe bowl and add a bit of water.  Cover with saran wrap and microwave for about 1-2 minutes, until spinach is wilted.  Strain spinach and allow to cool a bit - squeeze ALL of the moisture out - I even let it rest in a collander lined with paper towels to get the liquid out!

Once that's ready, give the spinach a bit of a rough chop and combine with the cottage cheese, feta, whole egg, garlic, parm, red pepper, salt & pepper.

On a lightly floured surface roll out the puff pastry.  Cut into 4 squares.

Divide the filling equally between the 4 pastry sheets - spooning it evenly down one side.

Start rolling and arrange seam side down on the cookie sheet.  Brush the tops with egg whites and bake for 25-30 minutes.

Once tops are nice and golden, remove from oven, let rest for about 5 minutes and serve!  You could also cut smaller squares and make into mini-appies - nom nom!
