350g Traditional Ricotta
80g Grated Parmesan Tub
350g packet of frozen chopped spinach, thawed
4 green shallots, trimmed, thinly sliced
2 tsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 eggs (1 egg, lightly whisked, plus 1, extra, whisked)
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
1/2 lemon rind, finely grated
2 sheets frozen puff pastry, just thawed
tomato sauce, to serve


1 Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
2 Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the shallot and garlic, stirring often, for 2 minutes or until softened. Transfer to a large bowl.
3 Place the spinach in a sieve set over a bowl. Use the back of a spoon to press as much liquid as you can out of the spinach. Discard liquid. Add spinach to shallot mixture. Add ricotta, parmesan, egg, dill, lemon rind and nutmeg . Season. Use hands to mix until well combined.
4 Cut each pastry sheet in half. Place one-quarter of the spinach mixture in a log shape along 1 long side of a piece of pastry. Brush the opposite long edge with extra egg. Roll up to enclose. Cut each roll into 3 pieces and place, seam side down, on the prepared trays. Repeat with the remaining spinach mixture and pastry sheet.
5 Score the rolls at 5mm intervals. Brush with extra egg. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with tomato sauce.
