  4. Lay out two sheets (one on top of the other) of filo pastry on a sheet of parchment paper. Overlap slightly with another two sheets horizontally.
  5. Spoon the vegetable mixture in a row 2 inches from the top of the filo pastry leaving approximately 1inch at either end.

    My variation on this tasted lovely so I feel a bit mean giving this two stars but I do so for two reasons - it is NOT vegetarian, and it is NOT dairy free! I found the recipe from a 'vegetarian christmas meal idea' thread, skimmed it, and was in the supermarket buying the ingredients when I realised how many substitutions id have to make. Worcestershire sauce is not vegetarian, and neither is most pesto: if this was amended to say 'vegetarian pesto' that would e better but most non-vegetarians won't know the difference. Pesto also isn't dairy free, which could be a real issue for someone with an allergy. This is lovely, but exactly the kind of thing someone would thoughtfully look up then cook for me (lactose intolerant) and my dp(vegetarian) which would make me quite ill and make us both feel quite awkward if he couldn't eat it.
