Unroll the crescent dough (do not separate into individual pieces) and pat into an 8-inch by 12-inch rectangle, gently pressing the seams closed.
Brush evenly with the mustard and then then top with the spinach, Cabot Vermont Sharp Cheddar, scallions and peppers, leaving a ½-inch border all the way around. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt.
Roll the dough sheet into a log, starting with a short side.
Slice into 8 pinwheels and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake until golden, 18 to 20 minutes.

I made these Spinach Cheddar Holiday rolls tonight (New Years Day) to serve with a Mediterranean white bean soup. They were delicious and so easy to make. On top of that, I have a hard time making anything that is “pretty” but these with the Cabot Vermont Sharp Cheddar and roasted red bell pepper came out gorgeous! I will make them for company now for sure.
