This is a perfect luncheon dish! You will need a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate, I used fresh sliced mushrooms in place of canned that I sauteed firstly when I made this, and I also added in a small chopped red bell pepper but that is optional. If you use more than 1 cup sauteed fresh mushrooms I suggest to use a 10-inch pie plate instead of 9-inch and roll the puff pastry out a little larger.

With mushrooms, spinach and cheese: very much my sort of favourite recipe! I made this pretty much to the recipe, except for using fresh mushrooms and adding a generous handful of baby spinach leaves to the thoroughly squeeze-dried frozen spinach. I also added 4 cloves of minced garlic and a teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves. Very yummy; very re-makeable! 8 serves? 6 people made short work of this at a family dinner by coming back for seconds, even though there were several other dishes. Thank you for another really easy to make winner, Kitten!
