READY IN: 45mins




  • Prepare the filling; In a large pan, fry the sliced onion in olive oil for 3-4 minutes, add the sliced pepper and continue frying for another couple of minutes before adding the sliced mushrooms.
  • Stir and fry for 3 minutes, then add the red pepper flakes, wine, and baby spinach leaves. Cook over a medium heat, stirring, until the spinach has wilted and the liquid has reduced away.
  • Take pan off heat and leave to cool, then add the basil strips and the cream cheese, season with salt and pepper.
  • Lay 1 sheet of phyllo pastry onto a work surface and lightly brush with melted butter. Lay another sheet of phyllo on top and brush again with the butter. Do this with all sheets.
  • Place the cooled filling along the centre of the phyllo and bring each long side over to form a roll. Tuck ends in and turn the roll over, so the seam side goes underneath, place onto a baking sheet. Brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Place into a preheated oven, 400ºF and bake for 20 minutes, until pastry is brown and crispy.
