“Needed a substantial main course for a vegetarian bride- "meaty" with mushrooms, salty from Haloumi, can be made with prosciutto as a side dish for meat eaters, or wrapped in puff pastry in individual portions and use a more melting kind of cheese (Colby style is good- sometimes I use a variety). Double and triple recipe to suit occaision and numbers and do layers in baking tray. This recipe serves 2.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blacken capsicum under the grill and let steam in the bag while getting the rest of the ingredients together.
  2. Finely chop garlic, brush underside of mushrooms with butter and cut cheese into thick slices.
  3. Layer ingredients in order listed, starting with one bunch of aparagus for the bottom and reserving one bunch for a top layer to go in between capsicum and cheese.Layer proscuitto over top, if using. Can be baked covered casserole dish or use a layer of alfoil lined with baking paper in a baking dish and wrap well. If using puff pastry, use half the ingredients and arrange in a stack in centre of one sheet of pastry and wrap. Make a couple of holes on top with a sharp knife to let out the steam.
