INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 sheets of puff pastry (thawed out or fresh)
  • 500g (2US cups) fresh ricotta
  • 120g (4oz) baby spinach (chopped)
  • 2 x eggs
  • Pecorino cheese
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Nutmeg
  • Oil spray (Or baking paper to line the baking dish)

UTENSILS:

  • Round pie dish
  • 1 x sharp knife
  • 1 x fork
  • Spatula
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Pastry brush

COOKING METHOD:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (350 F).
  2. Put the ricotta into the bowl and begin to break it down using a fork.
  3. Add chopped baby spinach and a generous handful of grated pecorino cheese.
  4. Mix together well and add a sprinkle of salt and pepper and a touch of nutmeg.
  5. Add an egg and mix together once again.
  6. Once the ingredients are mixed and the filling looks much creamier, it is ready.
  7. Line a baking dish with one sheet of puff pastry and prick the bottom of it using a fork so it helps it to cook through.
  8. Fill it using the ricotta mixture and even it out as much as you can using a spatula.
  9. Cover the pie with another sheet of puff pastry, angling it so that the edges cover any gaps.
  10. Create a crust by gently folding down the edges and joining the two layers together.
  11. Press down around the edges using the teeth of a fork.
  12. Beat an egg lightly in a small cup and add a drop of water.
  13. Brush the egg mix over the top of the pie using a pastry brush.
  14. Cook in the oven at 180 degrees celcius (350 F)for 40 minutes or until golden.
