Ricotta, 3 Mushroom & Spinach Strudel

“I made this as one course of my Christmas Eve smorgaasbord. It looks beautiful but is a bit bland for my taste - Next time I make them I will add 1 tsp chili flakes. Perfect for a buffet. If serving this as a side dish !/2 roll per person is generous Each roll may also be cut into 8 pieces to serve as appetizers. The recipe is from a Safeway pamphlet.”
