Was looking for a sausage roll recipe that used spinach, ricotta and puff pastry. Couldn't find one here on ZAAR but after a google search I came across this one on someones blog site, and posting here to pass onto a friend.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 200C (390F) fan forced or 220C (435/430F) convectional, please note that there can be slight variations between ovens.
  2. Heat oil in a fry pan, add onion and fry gently for 2 minutes, add spinach and pinenuts and season with salt and pepper to taste and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Let cool.
  4. Add ricotta and mix thoroughly and then add the lightly beaten egg and mix well together.
  5. Place pastry sheets on a flat surface and cut in half.
  6. Spoon or pipe spinach mixture along the length of each half of the pastry and brush water down the length of the other side and roll up like a sausage roll, repeat with other sheets of pastry and mix.
  7. Cut to preferred size (I like to cut into 4 to make mini rolls about 6cm long).
  8. Put a couple of slits in each roll (to allow steam to escape).
  9. Place on baking tray/sheet seam side down.
  10. Put in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Yum! I made this as just one huge Spinach and Ricotta Roll, we thought it was very delicious. I really enjoy spinach and ricotta rolls I get from the bakery, so I had to try this. It was very easy and simple to make. Thanks I'mPat for posting this wonderful recipe.

I made these for the Aussie/Kiwi Swap in January 2010. These are tasty, and probably even tastier if you use fresh onions ( I used what I had on hand-dehydrated onions). And if you know how to work with phyllo dough (I don't), they can come out very pretty.
