Easter cake revisited with Mariola salami

The Easter cake is a spring must but I wanted to re-propose it personalized with the addition of ingredients that made it tastier.
I assure you it was a real success even in the middle of winter!
Puff pastry a roll
300 g. of spinach
1 small onion
3 slices of Mariola salami cut thick.
4 eggs
250 g. ricotta cheese
20 g. parmesan
20 g. emmental cheese
1 clove of garlic
Oil, salt, pepper.
I boiled the spinach in a little salted water, in the meantime I cut the onion thinly and browned it slowly with extra virgin olive oil and water, at the end I added salt and pepper.
4, 5 minutes after boiling the spinach I immersed them in cold water to keep the colour. Then I drained and squeezed them. Finally I sautéed them with a drizzle of oil and a clove of garlic.
After a few minutes I removed the garlic and added the onion to blend the flavours.
In the meantime, I spread the puff pastry in a baking dish, beat the eggs and added, always mixing, the other ingredients: spinaci with onions, ricotta, the slices of Mariola salami cut into small cubes, and the grated Parmesan and Emmental cheeses. I filled the puff pastry with the dough, keeping a few centimeters of space to close the edges of the cake.
I informed 180 degrees for 35 minutes. Serve the warm cake with a good glass of Colli Piacentini wine.
