• 300g baby spinach

  • 6 small spring onions, finely chopped

  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped

  • ½ bunch of basil

  • 150g smooth ricotta

  • Pinch of mixed spice

  • 100g filo pastry(defrosted)

  • 50g melted butter

    Lay down one sheet of filo pastry and brush with melted butter, lay another sheet on top and brush with butter, repeat with a third sheet. Cut this pastry in half and fold over to double thickness (ie: 6 layers in total), then cut into 7 cm strips place a spoonful of spinach mix on one end and fold over at 45 degrees, repeat this process along the sheet and you will end up with a triangle.
