Each of these bite-sized appetizers feature flaky puff pastry encasing a meatball, pasta sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese.

Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry

  • Yield: 32 Servings
  • Cook time:15 Minutes
  • Prep time:10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed
  • 32 (1/2 ounce each) frozen fully-cooked meatballs
  • 3/4 cup prepared pasta sauce, basil pesto or sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • Shredded mozzarella or Asiago cheese

Preparation

Heat the oven to 400°F.  Unfold the pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface.  Cut each pastry sheet into 16 (2 1/2-inch) squares. Place the pastry squares onto 2 baking sheets.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes.  Split each pastry into 2 layers, making 64 layers in all.

Heat the meatballs according to the package directions.  Spread about 1 teaspoon pasta sauce on each bottom pastry layer.  Top each with 1 tablespoon arugula and 1 meatball.  Top with the cheese, if desired, and the top pastry layers.
