Salmon Pastries with Spinach and Cheese

We do love salmon, but serving it inside pastry crust is something that we just can't get enough of. That is why we invite you to try these salmon pastries with spinach and cheese. We've used ricotta and cream cheese, and to serve the pastries, we've also cooked up a nice and creamy parmesan sauce.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
