As 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.
