Roasted butternut, ricotta & spinach 'Wellington'


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal).
  • Toss the pumpkin in a little oil and seasonings in a tray and cook in the oven for about 15-20 mins until reasonably tender, regularly tossing. Then crush a little with a spoon and set aside to cool.
  • When ready, heat a little oil in a wok (or large non-stick, heavy-bottomed pan) and briefly sauté the garlic with the spinach to wilt, regularly stirring. Drain well.
  • Then gently mix the pumpkin with the ricotta, parmesan, spinach and a decent amount of salt and pepper using a wooden spoon.
  • Combine the egg with milk.
  • Place one pastry sheet on a workbench and mound half of the pumpkin mixture along the centre, leaving a border and flattening it a bit. Then brush the edges with egg wash, fold in the sides and roll up. Repeat the process with the other sheet and remaining mixture.
  • Place the rolls in a lightly oiled tray, brush all over with egg wash and cook in the oven for about 15-20 mins until golden and puffed.
  • Serve with a simple green salad on the side.
