2 tbsp  margarine
0 1/2 cup  bread crumbs
0.3333 cup  packed light brown sugar
0 1/2 tsp  ground cinnamon
6 each  plums
6 each  phyllo pastry dough sheet
1 each  olive oil cooking spray
0 1/2 cup  Cheese, ricotta, fat free
  1. Begin by melting the margarine in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Set aside 2 teaspoons of the brown sugar, and then add the rest, along with the breadcrumbs, to the pan.
  3. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring to break up any lumps.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and then stir in the cinnamon and allow the pan to cool.
  5. Next, halve the plums, remove the stones, and thinly slice the flesh.
  6. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and lightly grease a baking sheet.
  7. Lay two sheets of phyllo pastry on top of one another and spray the top sheet with oil. Sprinkle about 1/3 of the breadcrumb mixture over the top and then top with more phyllo sheets.
  8. Once again, spray the top sheet with oil and then sprinkle an additional 1/3 of the breadcrumbs over the top.
  9. Lastly, top with the remaining two sheets, spray with oil, and then sprinkle the remaining breadcrumbs.
  10. Spread the ricotta along the edge of the pastry and arrange the plums on top.
  11. Sprinkle with the reserved sugar and then roll up the pastry, like a Swiss roll, tucking in the edges as you roll.
  12. Now, carefully transfer the roll to the prepared baking tray and spray the top with the oil.
  13. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees F and bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until the pastry is crisp and brown.
