  • Pepper
  • 4 sheets filo pastry

  3. Place spinach in a bowl with ricotta, basil, garlic and egg. Season with pepper to taste and combine well.
  4. Remove filo from packet. Brush a little melted butter over one sheet of pastry and then top with other sheet. Cut pastry sheets in half lengthways into two long strips per sheet.
  5. Add half of the spinach mix at one end of one of the pastry rectangles, leaving a little room at the edge for sealing. Fold the pastry over the spinach filling in a diagonal, to form a triangle shape and continue wrapping the pastry around the triangle, to use up the whole filo rectangle.
  6. Brush with a little more butter on the edges to seal as well as over the top of the triangle. Repeat with remaining sheet of pastry and spinach mix so you have two triangles per serve.
  7. Place triangles on a lined baking tray and bake for 20 minutes or until puffed and golden. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
