  • 650g pack frozen ready-made shortcrust pastry, thawed
  • 3 large onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 280g jar Asda Extra Special Chargrilled Artichokes, drained and halved
  • 300ml pot soured cream
  • 2 tbsp Asda Coarse Grain French Mustard
  • 2 x 50g pack Asda Prosciutto Ham
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Roll out half the pastry on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 20cm x 30cm. Relax in the fridge for 10 minutes. Prick the base and bake for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool.

  • Fry the onions in the oil for 10-15 minutes, then leave to cool completely. Add the artichokes and toss together.

  • Mix together the soured cream and mustard and season with black pepper.

  • Pile the onion mixture on the pastry base and spread evenly, leaving a 1cm border around the edge. Roughly tear the prosciutto and scatter over, then spoon over the soured cream mixture. Brush the pastry border with egg.

  • Roll out the remaining pastry onto a piece large enough to cover the mixture and the pastry base. Lay over the pie base and gently press around the edge to seal. Mark this edge with a fork, before brushing the whole pie with the remaining beaten egg. Make a few cuts in the top to allow the steam to escape, so you don’t get soggy pastry.

  • Return the pie to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and golden.
