  • 150g mushrooms, sliced
  • 180g pack chestnuts, sliced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 75ml white wine (approx)
  • 1 teaspoon tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 320g pack of ready rolled 
  • puff pastry (Jus Rol)

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C/Gas mark 7. 
  2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the sliced mushrooms and cook for five minutes. 
  3. Add the sliced chestnuts, onion and garlic and cook until the onion is soft.  
  4. Then add the tomato puree, wine, herbs and seasoning. Add a little water if needed.
