Spinach Cream Cheese Crescents

1 small frozen package chopped spinach
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 package refrigerated crescent rolls

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Defrost frozen spinach, drain well. Place in bowl.

2. Place cream cheese out of wrapper in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds, and then add to spinach. Set aside.

3. In medium pan, melt butter in medium high heat. Add onions, saute until translucent. Drain on paper towel.

4. Add onion, Italian seasoning, and garlic to spinach cream cheese mixture. Mix all ingredients well. Place in refrigerator.

5. Take out your roll of crescent rolls. Lay each one out flat. Take your spinach mixture out of the refrigerator. Spoon tablespoon sized mixture onto the middle of each crescent roll. Fold each side up until completely covered over mixture. (I rolled out half the can and then applied the mixture because I wanted small finger foods)

6. Bake in oven for about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
