Ricotta & Spinach Triangles

riccotta-&-spinach-triangles-webRicotta & Spinach Triangles are a quick and easy lunch with a salad or as a snack ready in minutes especially if you use pre-made puff pastry and frozen spinach. I don’t know about you but I find the kids will eat anything if it’s wrapped in pastry so you could try hiding all sorts of grated veggies in here if you like.  If you don’t have any nut allergies adding crushed pine nuts also adds some flavour.

You could put these in the lunchbox with an ice pack as an alternative to sandwiches.
