Ingredients

  • 500 g puff pastry block
  • 1 mozzarella cut to 8 pcs
  • 8 tsp of pesto
  • 8 slices of salami I used German salami, the slices are bigger
  • grated Parmigiano Reggiano or finely grated parmesan
  • 1 whisked egg to brush the rolls before baking

Instructions

  • Line your oven tray with a baking paper. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Dust the working surface with flour and roll out the pastry. Ideally, you want to make a sheet that is around 400mm x 250mm. You can buy a sheet of puff pastry that is ready to use but because it's smaller ( 350mm x 230mm) it makes only 7 rolls instead of 8.

  • Divide the sheet of pastry into 8 triangles.

  • Smear pesto over each triangular piece. Centre salami, mozzarella and 3 asparagus spears in the middle.
    How to make filled Puff Pastry Rolls
  • Wrap up the pastry around the filling.

  • Leave gaps between the rolls when placing them on the baking tray and place the tip of the triangle facing down.
  • Brush the puff pastry rolls and exposed asparagus ends with a whisked egg and sprinkle with grated cheese before putting them to the oven.

  • Bake for 45 - 50 minutes. Serve warm.
  • Let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  • Note: As you can spot in one of the pictures above there is a sage leaf that I was going to wrap inside with the other ingredients. I was experimenting with adding sage into the rolls as I really liked the taste of it in the asparagus soup but I wasn't very keen on it in the rolls in the end. Therefore, I didn’t add the sage into the ingredient list.
