Spinach, leek & cheese pie

Method

  • Preheat oven to 170°C fan forced (190°C normal). 
  • Heat a little oil with the butter in a large pan and gently saute the leeks until tender. 
  • Pour boiling water over the spinach in a bowl and toss with a wooden spoon until wilted. Then drain well, squeeze out any excess water and roughly chop. 
  • Place the ricotta, eggs, parmesan, ground pepper, leeks and spinach in a large bowl. Mix until well incorporated.
  • Then spray the pastry sheets with oil and line a baking dish with them, overlapping the sides. Spoon in the mixture and fold the filo over the top, ruffling the centre a bit. Spray again with oil and cook in the oven for about 45 mins until golden brown and firm. Allow to cool on a rack for 10-15 mins, before turning out and serving.
