Three Cheese and Silverbeet Filo Pie

//Three Cheese and Silverbeet Filo Pie
I love cooking shows. The other day I was watching the tv show “Good Chef, Bad Chef” and a saw the amazing Adrian cooking a Three Cheese Filo Pastry. It looked delicious and I thought I’d give it a whirl. 

I have tweaked my recipe based on what great produce I could get at the local farmers market but the end result was delicious. I’m not a huge feta or ricotta fan but the taste was sensational.

You can add chicken to this as well if you want some meat to it. I have done both a chicken version and the vegetarian version shown below and they are just as yummy as one another.

This tastes even better the next day once the flavours have really developed! I have also frozen some and it has reheated fine. Delicious!
