Fried Agnolotti with Spinach and Cream Cheese Filling

Agnottoli with Cream Cheese & SpinachAs you know, we had ravioli made from wonton wrappers for dinner the other night but I had 8 left over and decided to continue the new tradition around here of making our own nibbles to go with a glass of wine on Saturday night. I mixed together cooked spinach and cream cheese for the filling and made the wrappers into agnolotti. I then fried them quickly in olive oil. I can assure you they were far superior to the usual bag of crisps. I did overfill them a little so the filling oozed out a bit while I was folding them over and pinching them shut. But it meant they were good and plump. I am in love with these wrappers and you will see me use them again in various different ways. I think I love them as much as chocolate – well almost.

    Those look delicious. I love anything stuffed in wonton wrappers and made into little pies. It seems that I am in the habit of picking up spinach and meat pies for the weekend from our local Whole Foods lately. I really should make my own because they are so expensive there!

      We don’t have them in every supermarket and had to go to a specialty store but I imagine over there you would find them quite easily but it’s always a matter of knowing where to look in a supermarket.

    I can just imagine how wonderful these would be as a pre-dinner snack with a lovely glass of wine. What a great idea and I’m sure there are many variations of filling you could use xx

    Wonton wrappers are one of my favorite “cheats” when it comes to stuffed things – they’re so easy to use. Like you, I usually overfill mine. But I like them that way, so no worries. Good looking dish – thanks so much.
