Italian Style Puff Pastry
8 squares of readymade puff pastry dough (5” diameter)
8 thin slices of zucchini
½ sliced/diced onion
½ bell pepper in thin strips, 1-2 inch long
100 gr grated cheese (of choice, but go for one that melts well. I like Gouda)
25 gr grated parmesan
Italian herb mix + salt/pepper
Preheat the oven to 420.
Cover your oven tray with a sheet of wax paper.
Lay out your squares of dough and pinch a small handful of the mixed cheese onto each one. Just evenly divide all your cheese between the eight pastries. Add a slice of zucchini to eaxh pastry, then three or four strips of bell pepper, and some strips of onion. Make neat little piles on one half of the dough squares (we’re aiming for triangles, like sandwiches). Then a pinch of Italian herbs on each, salt and pepper to taste and fold the empty half of your dough over your little piles.
Pinch the dough shut and place them about an inch apart on the sheet of wax paper. Take care that you close the pastry well, otherwise your cheese will run out. Also yummy, but a bit of a pity. Next, place your tray in the pre-heated oven and bake for about 15 minutes, or whenever the dough has turned a nice golden brown.
Serve hot with a meal, or as appetizers, or as snacks.
