    Filo is a delightfully light pastry and I love the little bit size treats they make. This is a fancy prawn and ricotta filling that is perfect for your next dinner party.

    This was my first time working with Phyllo and I had great success. The filling was absolutely delicious. I did do one thing differently. I did not use the oil, only the butter. Try dipping the turnovers in Siracha. It is delicious. Also, I did freeze some filling and made more turovers a couple of weeks later with very good results.  -  17 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
