I found this recipe on Pinterest
I think it's so pretty.
I forgot to take a photo after it was baked,so it looks a little pale here
It's an Italian recipe and I call it an Italian Sunburst
The recipe is so easy
200mls warm white wine (I found I needed more than this so just keep adding as needed)
90mls extra virgin olive oil(I also added a little more oil)
2 tspns salt
Bring it all together into a dough
Wrap in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for 30mins
Meanwhile cook a large bunch spinach until tender
Drain and squeeze out most moisture, cool
Mix with 350grms ricotta cheese and 1 egg
then 100grms of tasty cheese grated pecorino or similar
Salt and pepper
Divide dough into 2 and roll each out into 30cm circles
Place 1st one on a baking paper sheet Sprinkle on some breadcrumbs
then add stuffing,as follows
A little mound in the centre and leaving a space around this,
place a circle of filling leaving a little space around the edge.
Wet around the edge with water.
Place the second piece of dough on top
Press an upside cup over the centre and press all around the cup with a fork to form a pattern
then remove the cup
Press the dough all around and over the second circle of filling
Trim the edges and decorate with a fork
Cut into slices all around as in picture,then twist each one over on its side.
as in picture
Brush with egg and transfer to a baking tray and bake

We had friends for lunch and teamed the pie with
a nice crisp salad and salmon mornay
I set the table with a pink,shabby chic look
Plain pink and pink with rosebuds napkins
and fresh rose buds in a little vase
I made the napkin rings out of white fabric creating a rose on top
