READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by VickyJ

A great appetizer I came across in one of my Mom's cookbooks.

Truthfully, I'd probably only give these three stars - but I altered the recipe a bit (upped the parmesan, left out the breadcrumbs - in an attempt to de-carb it) so I'll take the blame for one star... But I just found these kind of... well, they just tasted like tuna and spinach. Not a terrible thing, just kind of boring. (And more spinach than tuna...) But thanks for posting it. :)
