Need a nice dinner to feed the family tonight, why not try something new and make a classic british pastry. When we usually think of pastry we often think of pies and sausage rolls, but we can use pastries in so many other interesting and tasty ways, which combine some traditional favourites with today’s demand for quick, tasty and easy-to-prepare mid-week meals. I used Tesco light puffed ready rolled to save me time from doing it from scratch. This is a great dish that I prepared with fresh steamed veggies and mash potatoes. Everything was demolished, so why do not try this in your household and see how it goes.
