Recipe: Spinach and ricotta pastry twists. 

To celebrate the last day of uni lectures/ tutorials on Friday, my course held a pot luck lunch. 

With there being 25 of us on the course and everyone bringing something, there was a lot of food. Somewhow we managed to devour the majority of it though!

I decided to make something savoury as there always seems to be an abundance of sweet food at these things. Spinach and ricotta is a favourite combination of mine so I opted for this filling within pastry. They were delicious and can be eaten hot or cold. 


250g puff pastry

150g spinach 

100g ricotta cheese

1 red onion

1 tspn olive oil

1 egg 

Salt and pepper for flavour 

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Fry the onion in oil, then add the spinach and then the ricotta. Separate the pastry into 4 balls and roll out into a large oval shape with a rolling pin. Score the sides of the pastry with a knife to form slits. Spoon the mixture into the centre of the pastry oval. Wrap the pastry slits round the filling and place on a baking tray. Brush egg over the top of the twists and bake for 25 minutes.
