spanakopieces

07 Sep

I love spanakopita.  Flaky outside with a tang of feta in with the spinach filling.  I could eat a plate full.  But they are not too Weight Watcher friendly 😦  So when I saw a HungryGirl post on the wonders of wonton wrappers and how she overhauled spanakopitas into spanako-pieces, I had to read further.  I’m glad I did, since I have made these several times since then and my entire family devours them the second they are done.

And the best part, besides being incredibly simple to make and delicious to eat, is the fact that 4 spanakopieces have only 4 Weight Watcher Pts+.

Spanako-pieces

  • 1 (10 oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup crumbled fat-free feta cheese
  • 4 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 1 or 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 16 small square wonton wrappers
  • olive oil non-stick spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.

Combine all ingredients except wonton wrappers and spray.  Mix well.

Spoon a heaping tablespoon of filling into the upper-right portion of each wrapper.  Spread filling out slightly so it covers on triangular half of the wrapper.  Fold the lower triangular half over the filling and gently pat to adhere.  Repeat with the remaining wonton wrappers.  Place each piece flat on the baking sheet.  Spray each piece with non-stick spray and bake until golden brown, about 15-17 minutes, flipping them halfway through.

Allow to cool slightly.

Makes 4 servings.

    I can attest that these are delicious and rival the “real” ones with phyllo dough.
