Florentine-Feta Rolls

4 green onions, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 T. olive oil, divided

1 (6 ounce) bag fresh Baby Spinach

1⁄4 cup fresh basil

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1 (13 7/8 ounce) package refrigerated pizza dough (I have used both whole wheat dough and crescent rolls with great results!)

1⁄4 cup crumbled feta cheese

2 T. toasted pine nuts

1 T. butter, melted

1⁄4 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 375. Grease 12 muffin cups and set aside. In a large skillet, heat 1 T. oil and cook green onions and garlic until tender. Add spinach and basil; cook and stir over medium heat until just wilted. Drain off excess liquid. Stir in salt and pepper; set aside to cool. On a well-floured surface, unroll pizza dough and shape into a 12×8 rectangle. Brush surface of dough with remaining olive oil. Spread spinach mixture to within one inch of the edges of the dough. Sprinkle with feta and pine nuts.

Starting with a long side, roll into a spiral. Slice roll into 12 pieces and place cut-side up in prepared muffin cups. Brush with butter and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand in muffin cups for 2 minutes. Remove carefully and serve warm.
