Cheese & Spinach Pastry

Spinach and cheese stuffed pastry is simply amazing. Crispy, tasty and easy to make. My wife learnt this dish from a friend and we chose to "upgrade" it slightly with the spinach which gives it a great twist. Baked puff pastry with spinach and cheese is an excellent pastry side dish or even as s family dinner alongside a plate of vegetables and dips. Easy to prepare - insanely delicious.
