Instructions

  • In a medium bowl stir together cream cheese, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic powder, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning until evenly mixed. Set aside.

  • Stuff each pocket with cream cheese mixture. Secure each opening with a few toothpicks.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
