Ingredients

  • 4 sheets (25cm x 25cm) store-bought shortcrust pastry, thawed
Spinach ricotta filling
  • 250g frozen spinach, thawed
  • 600g ricotta
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (40g) finely grated parmesan

  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flatleaf parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped dill leaves

Directions
1 Preheat oven to 180°C (355°F).

2 Cut pastry to fit 4 x 1-cup (250ml) pie dishes, allowing for an overhang.

3 To make the spinch–ricotta filling, squeeze out excess water from spinach, place in bowl with ricotta, eggs, parmesan, onion, parsley, dill, salt and pepper and mix together well. Divide filling between pastry-lined dishes and bake for 30 minutes or until filling sets.
