  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a 3.5cm-deep, 25cm x 35cm slice pan and line with baking paper.
  2. Step 2

    Cook broad beans in a saucepan of boiling water for 2 mins. Add the peas and cook for 1 min or until tender. Drain well. Peel the broad beans and place in a large bowl with the peas. Add the ricotta, egg, dill, parsley, mint and parmesan, and stir to combine. Season.

  3. Step 3

    Spray 1 filo sheet with olive oil spray. Top with another sheet. Spray with olive oil spray. Repeat to make a stack of 8 filo sheets. Cover with a damp tea towel. Repeat with the remaining filo to make another stack. Cut each stack into four 15cm squares.
  4. Step 4

    Divide ricotta mixture evenly among the filo squares, leaving a 1cm border. Arrange filo squares in 2 rows of 4 in the prepared pan, lifting edges of the filo to fit. Top with tomato. Season.
  5. Step 5

    Bake for 25-30 mins or until pastry is golden brown and filling is set. Serve warm or at room temperature.
