Drain and set aside.

4. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board. Lightly dust the top of the dough. Roll until the dough is about 1/8 inch thick. Transfer the dough to a 9-10-inch (24-25cm) pie pan. evenly press the pastry onto the bottom and up the sides of your pan. Trim off the excess dough off the top of the pan.

    I have made this a few time now and with being on furlough i have made and cut it and then put it in the freezer. I have just made another one but put some small pieces of cooked mushrooms which have been cooked with fresh garlic. The smell is lovely. This is by far the best quick recipe.
