  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Use a sharp knife to cut down the length of the corn cob close to the core to remove the kernels. Discard the cob.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the onion, stirring, for 2 mins or until onion softens. Add corn kernels, capsicum, celery and carrot. Cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until tender. Add the carbonara sauce, chicken and peas and stir to combine. Transfer to a 10-cup (2.5L) ovenproof dish.
  3. Step 3

    Place the filo on a clean work surface. Brush 1 filo sheet with a little butter. Top with a second filo sheet and brush with butter. Fold into quarters lengthways, then starting from one end, loosely roll pastry around to form a disc. Place on top of the chicken mixture. Repeat with remaining filo to make 8 discs. Brush with butter and sprinkle with caraway seeds.
  4. Step 4

    Bake for 20-25 mins or until golden brown and heated through. Serve with salad leaves and parsley, if desired.
