Spinach and Artichoke Turnovers with Ricotta and Mozzarella

Chef Michelle loves to dive into spinach-artichoke dip at parties, so she figured it was time to give the dish a starring role. She starts with a filling of cream cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan, spinach, and artichokes, then encases it in puff pastry and bakes until golden. A quick salad comes together while the turnovers bake, a refreshing contrast to all that cheesy goodness. Get your kitchen companion to help make the filling and form the turnovers.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare ingredients

    Prepare ingredients

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Set cream cheese aside to soften at room temperature. Rinse all produce. Pat spinach dry with paper towel and roughly chop. Drain artichoke hearts, pat dry with paper towel (to keep moisture out of the filling), and roughly chop. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Prepare filling

    Prepare filling

    In a large bowl, whisk 1 egg. Transfer half of egg to a small bowl and reserve for sealing turnovers. Add mozzarella, Parmesan, cream cheese, and 2 tablespoons ricotta to large bowl with egg and stir to combine. Stir in spinach and artichoke hearts (enlist a kitchen helper for this part). Season with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired.

  3. Fill turnovers

    Fill turnovers

    Add puff pastry squares to prepared baking sheet, spacing apart. Add ¼ cup filling to center of squares, leaving a 1-inch border. Lightly brush edges with some reserved egg (from small bowl), saving remainder for the next step. Gently fold 1 corner of each puff pastry square over filling to form a triangle, then gently press edges with your fingers to seal—this is another great task for a helper.

  4. Bake turnovers

    Bake turnovers

    Cut a small slit on top of turnovers so steam can escape, then brush over remaining egg. Bake until puffed and golden brown, 14-17 minutes.

  5. Make balsamic dressing

    Make balsamic dressing

    While turnovers bake, roughly chop parsley leaves, discarding stems. Halve tomatoes (you could also leave them whole to save time). Pat arugula dry with paper towel. In a separate large bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons olive oil, ⅛ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired. Add tomatoes and arugula to bowl with dressing, waiting to toss until ready to serve so the arugula stays crisp.

  6. Plate turnovers

    Use the remaining downtime to get ahead on dishes or set the table. Once baked, let spinach and artichoke turnovers cool for 5 minutes, then divide between serving plates, along with salad. Garnish with parsley and dig in!
