“Ragú® Recipe Contest Entry. These are crunchy pies, empanada-like in texture. Think of a meat pie but with a twist of using sausage and garbanzo beans for a filling.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Cut sausage into small pieces. Heat a table spoon of olive oil in a large wide rimmed skillet and cook sausage stirring for about 6-8 minutes until browned. Add garbanzo beans, chopped cilantro and breadcrumbs and cook and stir this mixture for 2 minutes. Add Ragu pasta sauce and scrape up all the brown bits with a wooden spoon. Cook stirring until all the liquid evaporates, for about 5 minutes.
  2. 2. Mix the filling with toasted pine nuts and grind it up in a food processor. Salt and pepper to taste. Set the filling aside to cool.
  3. 3. Dough: combine all the ingredients in one bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until it comes together. Transfer the dough on a well floured surface and knead it for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastice. Brush the dough with oil and put in plastic wrap to rest for about 20 minutes.
  4. 4. Roll out the dough on a well floured board as thin as possible, to about 1/4 of an inch thickness. With a round shape cutter cut out 5 inch circles. Put about 1 table spoon of filling in the center of each circle and roll it up like a tortilla, tightly pinching the sides and edges.
  5. 5. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking tray with foil paper and spray with cooking spray. Place rollups on the tray and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
