Fried Agnolotti with Spinach and Cream Cheese Filling

Fried Agnolotti 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.

  1. 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!

  2. These look so good. I’m going to have to keep an eye out for these wrappers and give them a try.

    • 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.

  12. 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.
