Spinach & Sausage Pinwheels are crescent roll dough sheets slathered with a spinach and cheese mixture, topped with spicy Italian sausage, then rolled, sliced and baked. They are sooooo gooood! Start by mixing a cheesy spinach mixture, which includes ricotta cheese, feta cheese, Italian seasoning, and frozen-then-thawed spinach. I’m pretty sure the spinach in here cancels out the calories from the cheese. And the sausage. And the crescent rolls.
