Florentine Rolls

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Al Al

These are SO yummy with spaghetti, or as an accompaniment to a soup like minestrone for a light meal. They take a little more time than I usually like to for a side, but they are well worth it!!

These were brilliant. A perfect accompaniment to pasta, but I think they'd probably be great as an appetiser too. I didn't have the time or inclination to make pizza dough, so I just used pre rolled shortcrust pastry. I don't know how much difference it would have made, but they were easy this way and superb!

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Grease 12 muffin cups and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoons oil and cook green onions and garlic until tender.
  3. Add spinach and basil; cook and stir over medium heat until just wilted. Drain off excess liquid. Stir in salt and pepper; set aside to cool.
  4. On a well-floured surface, unroll pizza dough and shape into a 12x8 rectangle. Brush surface of dough with remaining olive oil. Spread spinach mixture to within one inch of the edges of the dough. Sprinkle with feta and pine nuts.
  5. Starting with a long side, roll into a spiral. Slice roll into 12 pieces and place cut-side up in prepared muffin cups. Brush with butter and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand in muffin cups for 2 minutes. Remove carefully and serve warm.
