Crusty Parmesan, Olive & Basil Fillo Parcels


Preheat oven at 200°C.

Grease and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Cut each filo sheet in half, and then half again. Lay each half of filo pastry on a clean working bench. And spray lightly with oil spray or brush with olive oil.

On the edge of each half, place a piece of prosciutto, 1 basil leaf, few olive slices and a pinch of parmesan. Fold each half of filo to form an envelope, closing the edge tightly. Place the parcels on the baking tray. Brush or spray each parcel with a little extra oil. Bake for about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.

Tip: You can replace the basil with pesto.
