Oven temperature: 200°C .
1. Vegetables: Place all the vegetables in a roasting tin. Drizzle with olive oil and toss well to coat. Roast in a preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes until just tender, tossing once during cooking. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.

2. Pastry: Sift the cake fl our and salt. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add the Parmesan, then add the water a little at a time, to form a ball. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Remove from the fridge and leave to stand at room temperature until slightly softened. Roll out onto a lightly floured surface to form a large circle about 5mm thick. Roll the pastry up around a rolling pin, then carefully unroll it onto a greased baking tray.

3. Filling: Put the vegetables in a mixing bowl, and add the pesto and the cheese. Toss to coat. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

4. Spread the filling out on the pastry, leaving a 3cm rim right round. Fold the edges of the pastry up over the vegetables. Brush the pastry with the beaten egg. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes at 200°C until the pastry is golden and crisp.
