Ingredients

320g pack ready-rolled puff pastry
1 tbsp olive oil
2 courgettes, coarsely grated
150g pack garlic & herb soft cheese (we used Boursin)
185g can tuna in spring water, drained and broken into flakes
140g ready-roasted peppers, sliced into strips
1 tbsp caper in bring, drained
8 pitted black olives

Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Unroll the puff pastry onto a large baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Score a 1cm border around the edges with a sharp knife, taking care not to cut through the pastry. Prick the area inside the border with a fork. Bake for 15 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in frying pan and fry the courgettes until tender and the mixture is quite dry. Allow to cool a little before mixing with the soft cheese.
  3. Remove the pastry base from the oven and press down any puffed up areas, within the border, with the back of a spoon. Spread over the courgette mixture. Scatter with tuna, lay over the pepper strips and sprinkle on capers. Finally dot with olives and bake for a further 15 mins until the pastry is golden, puffed up and cooked though.
