Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 roll puff pastry, thawed completely
  • 50 ml olive and rosemary pesto
  • 500 ml cooked chicken, cubed (from a SPAR Deli counter)
  • 125 g SPAR lean back bacon, cooked and chopped
  • ½ a can SPAR Salad Cut asparagus, very well drained
  • 1 pouch SPAR cheese sauce (200 g)
  • 1/3 each small, assorted colour peppers, sliced in thin strips
  • A little SPAR milk to brush over pastry

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 210 ºC. Lightly grease a large baking tin.
  2. Unroll the pastry onto prepared baking tin. Press or roll out further all round to increase it?s overall size slightly.
  3. Spread the pesto evenly across the pastry.
  4. Combine the chicken, bacon, asparagus and sauce in a bowl. Spoon this mixture lengthwise down the centre of the pastry. Arrange pepper strips over.
  5. Close the parcel in the same way you would when wrapping a sandwich.
  6. Brush over lightly with milk, and bake immediately for 25 minutes until puffy and golden.

Hints & Tips

  • Try the SPAR pepper sauce if you enjoy spicy meals.
  • Children may tend to prefer the asparagus be substituted with canned lentils or butter beans.
