Finger Food Friday....oh, um Tuesday?

The weekly "Finger Food Friday", has not been very consistent...but at least I am still doing them right?  I had a feeling when I started "Finger Food Friday", that it would be a little challenging for me to post the recipes every Friday.  That was one of the reasons I was intrigued to do it.  I wanted to challenge myself, have a weekly feature and most of all just share these great recipes.  Friday...that is where the problem lays.  Work is usually busy that day, my lunch break is spent planning for that night, after work is filled with grocery shopping and cooking and cleaning.  Leaving little time or energy to take pictures, and post to the blog.  I just might start "Finger Food Thursday"?

Mama Mia Ravioli Bites
Recipe from Pillsbury. Changed a little.

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1 Container Whole Milk Ricotta (15oz)
1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
2 TBSP Chopped Basil
Salt and Pepper
Thinly Sliced Salami, Finely Chopped (2 1/2oz)

Pre-heat oven to 375 Degrees.

Unroll Dough, press together seams.  Using rolling pin, flatten out slightly.  Cut into Squares about 2 1/2" big.  Place one square in the bottom of muffin cups.  In a medium bowl mix remaining ingredients.  Spoon mixture into each cup.  Place second square on top of mixture.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes (or until golden brown).  Serve with warm spaghetti sauce. 

My review...these are so delicious!  They are a great blend of cheese and spices and the salami fits really well. (or so I am told, I am a vegetarian and tried it without the meat)  They were also easy to put together.  As with anything the first time I made them it took some time, but now that I know what I am doing they take no time at all.  As you can see in the picture I also poked a hole in the top, part for aesthetics and part for ventilation.
