This recipe comes from an old 1980's cookbook from Bogota, Colombia. This is a really simple dish.


  1. Divide the puff pastry into 2 equal parts.
  2. On a floured work surface, roll out 1 piece of the dough so that it is not too thin, but will cover a 8 x 8 inch baking dish (sides and bottom); grease pan and place rolled out puff pastry in dish.
  3. Rinse spinach and cook, over medium heat, with salt, for about 5 minutes to wilt; remove, drain, and chop spinach.
  4. In a bowl, combine spinach with cheese and spread the spinach mixture over the pastry in the baking dish; quarter the cooked eggs and scatter them over the spinach.
  5. On a floured work surface, roll out other piece of pastry and place over spinach mixture; use a fork to seal like a crust.
  6. Beat egg with sugar and brush over outer crust.
  7. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 45 minutes.
  8. Serve with meat.
