Why I Love This Recipe

Bocconcini are just bite-size morsels of fresh mozzarella. Look for them at specialty food stores and Italian markets, as well as many supermarkets; they're usually packaged in water or whey for freshness. Choose part-skim ricotta instead of regular; it has comparable creaminess, with fewer calories and less fat. Whole-wheat pitas are fiber-rich -- and tasty.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 mini whole-wheat pitas (3 inches each), split
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 garlic clove, pushed through a garlic press
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/2 pint bocconcini (about 20 balls), halved


Directions

Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil; arrange pita halves on sheet, cut side up.


In a small bowl, combine ricotta, oregano, and garlic; season with salt and pepper.


Dividing evenly, spread ricotta mixture on pitas, and top with spinach and bocconcini. Season with salt and pepper


Broil until cheese is melted and starts to brown, 4 to 6 minutes, rotating sheet from front to back halfway through baking.


Serve immediately.
