6 ounces cream cheese softened 1/2 box frozen spinach thawed and excess water squeezed out 1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts finely chopped 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese salt and pepper to taste 24 wonton wrappers 1 egg beaten oil for frying 1/2 cup diced tomatoes seeded 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Place the cream cheese, spinach, artichoke hearts, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper in a bowl. Still until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Place a wonton wrapper on a flat surface and drop 1 1/2 teaspoons of the cream cheese mixture into the center. Brush the edges of the wonton with the egg. Bring 2 opposite corners together in the middle of the wonton and pinch. Repeat with the other 2 corners and pinch to form a package shape. Repeat with the remaining wontons and cream cheese until all are filled. Heat 4 inches of oil in a deep pan to 350 degrees F. Fry 5-6 wontons at a time, turning them as needed to make sure they brown evenly. This process should take about 3-5 minutes. Drain the cooked wontons on paper towels and repeat the frying process with remaining wontons. In a small bowl, combine the tomatoes, parsley with a pinch of salt. Serve the wontons immediately, with the tomato mixture spooned over the top or served on the side.
