Method

 
Heat a pan on the stove on medium heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil.

Fry onions till softened and starting to brown. Add garlic and stir for a few seconds.

Add chopped fresh mushrooms and a little more olive oil. Fry for a few minutes, stirring, then add porcini mushrooms.

Add parsley, stir and remove from heat, allowing to cool slightly.

In a bowl add mushroom mix to the ricotta. Add nutmeg and seasonings and mix well.

Pre-heat oven to 180°C.

Grease a mini muffin or cupcake pan – 12 holder.

Set aside three sheets of phyllo pastry, covering with a damp cloth as you work.

Use a silicon mat or wax paper and place a sheet of phyllo over.

Brush one phyllo sheet with melted butter/olive oil and lay the next sheet over and repeat with remaining two sheets.

Cut the stack of three sheets into 12 rectangle of dimensions 12 x 10 cm.

Lay each rectangle into the muffin holder - scrunch up a bit.

Fill with ricotta mushroom mixture.

Spoon a little melted butter over.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.
