Puffs using Pastry sheets

 Hi all..welcome back...i jus watched "Unnai pol Oruvan" kamalahasan movie.It was awesome,its a thriller comedy film.I enjoyed it
My family lives on main course meal and sometimes on snack.My hubby and daughter loves snacking around in the evening.I find terrible time to cook for them...I go crazy in deciding what to cook for them...Recently i bought some pastry sheets..And kept in room temperature(thawed) for 2-3 hours.. and made some hot puffs with veg stuffings.
Here is the way...
 Drizzle some(AP) flour and spread the sheet on it.Roll it to thin sheets in the same length

Cut the sheets horizontal


Stuff anything u like and close with rest of the sheet


Wet the sheet with an egg slightly(to get the brown color on top).If u r no-egg person,use milk instead.Keep them in fridge for 10 minutes before it goes to oven(I like this way,pastry puffs more layers than in room temp).Bake them at 250*F at 10 to 15 minutes in a preheated oven


Hot Puffs are ready

About the cheese,the pasta mix well with soft cheese like Parmesan and Romana .....or any Italian cheese..U can also try ur own favorite cheese....

Any cheese-As u like

Cook Pasta in boiling water,add some salt and oil

Once,the pasta is well cooked,the water bubbles on top

Drain the water,and keep the pasta aside

If u r using upto 250gms of pasta,add double the tomato puree(not tomato sauce).Bring the puree to a boil,add the vegetables,garlic,salt and the onions ,allow them to cook at least 10-15 minutes

Switch off the flame and add the herbs and grated cheese..Close the lid for sometimes
