Happy Friday everyone! Here is a quick and easy snack to make while watching football this weekend! Fillo dough is my enemy, but Fillo Shells I love love love. When asked to make these delicious goodies in the past I would come up with every excuse possible to get out of it. Umm sorry but my dog ate the recipe and I just can't remember how to make them. Or, I need to wash my hair and you know that will take all day. Or I don't cook anymore (wink, wink). Seriously the filling is super super easy but you had to work with the fillo dough taking 1 sheet at a time, placing a small bit of filling, and then folding it up in a triangle shape. Just thinking about it is torture!!!! Well not anymore. I decided to try out the fillo shells and they worked out fabulously. Now, I'll make up a batch anytime no problemo. Just ask.
Here's what you'll need:
2 boxes of Fillo Shells
1/2 pound Italian or pork sausage
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 cup meatless spaghetti sauce for dipping
First brown up the sausage and onion and then drain off the grease.
Combine sausage with cheeses, and oregano.
Place filling in the Fillo Shells on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Keep an eye on them! Everything is already cooked. By baking them we just want to melt the cheeses.
You can either put a little dab of spaghetti sauce on top of the filling before baking or serve the sauce on the side. Next time I think I will serve it on the side. I like it better without sauce, "G" likes it better with sauce. On the side is the perfect compromise!
