    This is another Pillsbury recipe but it is from the Bake-Off 42, this year, in Orlando, 2006. It looks delicious and easy. Yummy!

      Wow! These tasted like cheese sticks. I used 9 oz of 1/2 spinach 1/2 beet greens and a bit of kale. I only had about 8 oz of ricotta on hand. I made them into patties and fried them in a bit of oil. So yummy!
