How to make Spinach And Feta Cheese Rotolo Recipe

  1. To begin making Spinach and Feta Cheese Rotolo Recipe, mix the ingredients for the pasta dough in a mixing bowl. Bind it together with water to form a soft dough and cover it with a cling film and keep it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

  2. Heat the pan with little oil and wilt the spinach till all the water evaporates then mix it with cheese and other ingredients for the filling. Check for salt and pepper. 

  3. Heat a sauce pan to make the spinach sauce, melt the butter and add flour, whisk till it combines and forms a crumbly texture, then slowly add milk and keep whisking it quickly so that it does not form a lump. Add the spinach puree and reduce the heat and whisk one last time. The sauce has to be little runny.

  4. Take the pasta from the refrigerator, Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a 20x12" rectangle, about 1/8" thick, orient the dough so that a long edge is facing you (short edges will be to your left and right). 

  5. Evenly add a dollop of filling on the long edges of one side. Roll the dough over the filling tightly and carefully. Then seal the edges with water.

  6. Cut crosswise into 2 ½" rounds. Transfer rotolos to a pan, placing cut side up. 

  7. Heat the pan and then add the spinach white sauce over the rotolos, place the broccolis and top it up with some shredded cheese.

  8. Cover the pan and cook it on low heat for 10 minutes.

  9. Serve your yummy Spinach and Feta Cheese Rotolo Recipe for a Friday dinner or as a one pot White Bean Salad with Onions and Bell peppers.
