Servings 8 turnovers


  • 10oz frozen, chopped spinach (thawed)
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons shallots, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sheets ready to bake puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten


  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Drain spinach of any excess water. In a medium bowl, stir together spinach, ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, garlic, shallot and salt.
  • Unfold sheets of puff pastry. Cut each sheet into four equal squares. Place 2 Tablespoons of spinach mixture into the center of each pastry square. Fold each pastry square diagonally over spinach.   Pinch edges of dough together with a fork. Brush the tops and sides of each turnover with the beaten egg.
  • Place each turnover on the lined baking sheet. Bake 16-18 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.


  • You can make the filling a day ahead and refrigerate it until ready to use.
  • If you have whole frozen spinach on hand, you can chop it yourself rather than buying the pre-chopped.
