I want to throw dinner parties so I can make appetizers and bite sized little things for fun.
ALL THE TIME.
I just love mini-things.
They’re baby versions of goodness that are easy to hold in your hand and fun to serve.
When I started making these, I realized I didn’t have any ricotta or cottage cheese. I typically use ricotta mixed with some parm and salt and pepper as a layer in my lasagna. I used what I had on hand – which was cream cheese, softened, mixed with Parmesan. I wasn’t very confident it would give me a good result.
I was a little scared.
But it worked!
As a matter of fact, it was so good I’m keeping it as a change-up version of my lasagna. It adds a depth and richness that neither ricotta or cottage cheese can accomplish.
Damn, my fingers look fat. And pink.
You could definitely use wonton skins or phyllo dough to make it easier, but I really like the texture of the flour tortilla.
Aren’t they pretty! Perfect for your Super Bowl party!
