Direction and Ingredients
Amount Ingredient Preparation
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 each onions chopped
2 cloves garlic (or more), crushed
28 ounces tomatoes, canned with juice
1 teaspoon basil dried
3 fl red wine
8 ounces mushrooms button mushrooms, washed & sliced
1 x salt
1 x pepper freshly ground
10 ounces filo pastry
4 ounces butter melted
3 1/2 ounces cashew nuts roasted, roughly chopped
 Heat the oil in a fairly large saucepan, add the onions and cook them, with the lid on the pan, for about 1 minutes, until they are tender but not browned.  Add the garlic, the tomatoes together with their liquid, the basil and the wine.  Let the mixture simmer gently without a lid on the pan, stirring from time to time, until the liquid has disappeared and it is quite thick - this will take about 2 minutes. 

Add the mushrooms and cook for a further 5 minutes or so, or until the mushrooms are tender and any liquid which they make has boiled away. Remove from the heat and season to taste.

When the filling mixture has cooled, you can assemble the strudel, which can then be cooked straight away, or kept in the fridge for a few hours until you're ready, or in the freezer for at least a month.

Preheat the oven to 4 F.

If you have the type of filo pastry which is long and narrow - about 3 x 2 cm (12 x 8 inches) - lay two sheets side by side, overlapping them slightly where they join. If you have the type which is quite large - about 3 cm (12 inches) or so square - lay out one sheet. Either way, brush the surface with a little melted butter and then sprinkle with a third of the nuts. Put another layer of filo pastry on top, brush with butter, and scatter with nuts. Repeat with another layer, then a final layer of filo pastry, which you just brush with butter. Now tip the tomato filling mixture on top and spread it to about 2.5 cm (1 inch) of the edges.

Fold the edges over, to enclose the edge of the filling then, starting from one of the widest edges, roll the whole thing up like a Swiss Roll, trying not to let it break.

Brush with melted butter and garnish with some shreds or shapes of filo pastry.

Put the strudel into the oven and bake for 3 minutes, or until golden brown.

Transfer carefully to a serving dish with the aid of two fish slices
