Strudels originated in Austria and often boast sweet flavors. This one is savory with Tuscan influences of tomatoes, mushrooms and pesto. —Jeanne Holt, Mendota Heights, Minnesota

  1. In a nonstick skillet, saute mushrooms and tomatoes in 2 teaspoons oil from sun-dried tomatoes until mushrooms are tender. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine spinach, pesto, pepper and, if desired, pepper flakes. Add artichokes, mozzarella cheese, 5 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and mushroom mixture; mix well.
  3. Unroll crescent dough onto a lightly greased baking sheet into one long rectangle; seal seams and perforations. Roll out into a 14x9-in. rectangle.
  4. Spread filling in a 3-in.-wide strip down center of rectangle. On each long side, cut 1-in.-wide strips to within 1/2 in. of filling. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling. Whisk egg and remaining oil; brush over dough. Sprinkle with walnuts.
  5. Bake 20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese; bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before cutting into 12 slices. Yield: 12 servings.

"I substitute the sun dried tomatoes with roasted red peppers, and I replace the frozen artichokes with the jarred variety. I use the juices from both the peppers and artichokes to sautée the mushrooms and spinach. I have also found it easy to bake it as a casserole by placing one unrolled tube of crescent rolls on the bottom of a 9x13 pan, layer in the ingredients, then top it off with a second roll of crescents, egg, and Parmesan. Any way I make it, my family enjoys every bite...even my three year old!"

"Very delicious. I added finely diced chicken, using three chicken tenders. The crust was a bit tricky but well worth the time and effort."
