Pasta's Got Your Goat . . . Cheese

Well it's not really pasta, but close.  It happened again.  I made my manicotti and had left over wonton wrappers.  I created this dish to use the darn things up!

Can't go wrong with a hint of lemon overlaying the creaminess of the filling.  The rich result is amazing for such a light dish.

Lemony Goat Cheese "Pasta" Rolls

2 ounces goat cheese
4 Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese wedges, room temperature
1 egg
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1 cup frozen artichoke hearts, defrosted and chopped
16 (3-inch) wonton wrappers
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 ounce finely shredded fresh Parmesan cheese (about 1/2 cup)
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
Fresh spinach leaves, optional

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Coat 8 by 8-inch baking pan with olive oil spray.  Place goat cheese, Laughing Cow wedges, egg, and lemon zest in medium bowl and mix well.  Stir in artichoke hearts.

Spread rounded tablespoon filling on one edge of an egg roll wrapper and roll up.  Place in prepared pan.  Continue until filling and wrappers are used up.  Drizzle lemon juice over rolls and sprinkle with Parmesan.

Bake 20 minutes, until rolls are hot and edges are beginning to turn golden.  Watch carefully so rolls do not become crispy.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with parsley.  Serve on a bed of spinach leaves, if desired.  Makes 4 servings, 5 points plus and 189 calories each.
