My Ricotta Cheese & Spinach Cups

Norma DeRemer


Was at a friends house a couple of weeks ago and she had these pastry cups filled with ricotta and spinach.They were so good that I asked her for the recipe.
I changed it just a little by using wonton wrappers instead of pastry and they turned out so good. This will be one of my appetizers at my next part for sure. Another thing I like about these are; they are only 50 calories with only 2 grams of fat. How good is that?
