  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 300 g Butternut Squash grated or very finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoon Herbs of your choice sage, parsley, oregano and rosemary all work well, finely chopped
  • 160 g Ricotta
  • 120 g Goat's Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 375 g Ready Rolled Puff Pastry
  • 1 Egg whisked
  • Nigella Seeds
  • Chutney of your choice to serve
  • Salad to serve


  • Heat the oil over a medium high heat in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry for 5 minutes until softened. Add the squash and herbs and cook for another 5-10 minutes.
  • Put the mixture in a bowl and add the ricotta, goat's cheese and plenty of salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside to cool slightly.
  • While the filling cools heat the oven to 200°C/400°F. Line a large baking sheet with greaseproof paper. Unroll the puff pastry sheet on the baking sheet. Tip the squash mixture onto the pastry sheet and shape into a log on one long half of the rectangle. Brush the edge of the pastry with the egg and fold the pastry over. Press the edges down with a fork. Score the top with a sharp knife, brush with egg and sprinkle with nigella seeds.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes until the pastry is browned and puffed up. Allow to cool slightly then slice and serve with chutney and salad.
