The spinach and cheese sack is an opportunity to prepare vegetables in a different way, colorful and incorporating other textures to the dish that will draw attention to even the smallest. We show you how to prepare it with some recommendations.
A bag of spinach and cheese can be filled in multiple ways and with different ingredients. We have made a simple mixture of sautéed spinach with mushrooms and cottage cheese, but you can make another kind of fried with spinach and prepare a sauce to accompany it. I ate it with Boletus sauce on the previous occasion and it was sublime.
The first recommendation to make these spinach and cheese sachets is to talk about the dough or pasta to be used. The filo paste is a possibility because its final texture is very crunchy but, being so finite is broken at once, so the best option is going to be the pasta brick that is also crunchy but is a bit thicker, so it is easier to work with it and, if you do not find, you can also try with wafers or puff pastry.
We have used cottage cheese or ricotta but you can use goat cheese or opt for a milder flavor like a little brie or a spoonful of cream cheese, which is also amazing.

Peel and laminate mushrooms finely. Add to the frying pan and let it be done with the rest of the vegetables. When they are ready, you incorporate the sprockets, try the salt and rectify it if necessary.
The spinach has a lot of water, so it is important that they drain well this fried so that they do not moisten the dough excessively.
