What better combination can one think of than creamy pasta and puff pastry? This recipe merges the two worlds together to provide a devilish sinful - yet relatively simple - dish that is surely a crowd pleaser!


Serves: 4

  • 400 grams tortelloni (I prefer meat tortellini, but that is entirely up to you)
  • 150 grams pancetta cubes
  • 200 grams mushrooms (sliced)
  • 250 millilitres fresh cream
  • 4 cloves garlic (diced)
  • 2 all-butter ready-rolled puff pastry sheet at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 egg whisked
  • olive oil

  1. Boil the tortellini to 1-2 minutes less than the packet instructions. Drain and set aside until sauce is finished.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200°C.
  3. Fry the garlic and mushrooms in olive oil until golden (approx 3-4 minutes).
  4. Add the pancetta and continue frying for another 3-4 minutes.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Add the fresh cream and leave to simmer on a low flame for approximately 5 minutes.
  7. Add the al dente tortellini to the sauce and stir until completely coated and the sauce is a thick mixture.
  8. Roll out the pastry sheets onto baking paper on a baking dish.
  9. Equally divide the pasta and sauce between the two pastry sheets, placing the sauce in the middle and leaving about 1-2 inches from the end to fold the pastry.
  10. Fold the pastry in parts towards the middle - depending on your preference you may choose to cover the pasta completely or leave a hole in the middle.
  11. Lightly eggwash both "pies" and sprinkle poppy seeds.
  12. Pop the pies into the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  13. Each pie is large enough to be cut into pieces and serve 2 people.
