Baked Kataifi-Wrapped Goat Cheese

I must tell you that this was an enormous hit! And really not so difficult to make. I first made this as an appetizer at Thanksgiving but have followed up with other less formal meals.

1 pound goat cheese
1 cup mixture of finely diced carrot, celery and onion
1 package frozen kataifi dough, defrosted
unsalted butter, melted (quarter pound)

1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees.
2. In a bowl, mix the cheese and vegetables together. Set aside.
3. Pull off a piece of kataifi, and spread it out to measure about 1x4 inches. Brush it with melted butter. Roll some of the cheese mixture into a 1x1/2-inch cylinder, and wrap it up in the dough. Repeat with the remaining filling and kataifi.
4. Bake on a baking sheet for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
