  1. We want to start with the pastry. To make the pastry first melt the butter.

  3. Add a bit of water, a few tbsps until the mix binds and it becomes a dough.
  4. Tip the pastry onto a lightly floured surface, gather into a ball and roll out.
  5. Line the pastry into the base of a tin and trim the pastry edges  if needed.
  6. Press the pastry in well and very lightly prick the base with a fork.
  7. Let the pastry cool for a few minutes before adding the filling.

For the filling: 

  1. Heat a frying pan and saute the chopped onion until translucent.
  2. Add the spinach, salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes.
  3. If possible chop the turkey into cubes and saute for a few minutes as well.
  4. Remove any excess liquid and just put the filling on the side so you can make your cream sauce.
  5. In a saucepan add the milk, butter, nutmeg, a bit of salt, and add the flour slowly while stirring to create a thick creamy sauce.
  6. Then add the mozzarella, mix well so it melts and remove from heat.
  7. You can now add your filling in the tin over the pastry, top with some mozzarella and bake in a pre heated oven at 180C.
