    • 125ml (½ cup) Parmesan, freshly grated

    • 1 x 400g packet puff pastry
    • 4 red onions, thinly sliced
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) butter, melted
    • handful fresh thyme

    Preheat the oven to 200°C.


    Place the ricotta, Parmesan and eggs in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth and well combined.
