  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain flour
  • 2 cups (500ml) milk
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • 250g tub PHILADELPHIA Spreadable Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives

  • 1/4 cup (40g) semi sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 100g baby spinach leaves, wilted
  • 1 red capsicum, roasted, thinly sliced

How to make it

  1. GREASE a 36cm x 25cm Swiss roll pan, and line with baking paper. Melt the butter in medium saucepan, add the flour and cook stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk and stir continuously until sauce boils and thickens. Remove from the heat, and stir in the egg yolks, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
  2. BEAT the egg whites in a medium bowl until stiff and gently fold into the cheese mixture. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, then sprinkle with extra Parmesan. Bake at 190ÂșC for 12-15 minutes or until set and golden. Turn out onto a clean tea towel. Carefully remove paper and allow to cool completely.
  3. COMBINE the PHILLY, herbs, pinenuts, tomatoes, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Spread the Parmesan sponge with the PHILLY mixture. Top with a single layer of spinach then red capsicum. Using the tea towel to assist, roll up from the short end as for a Swiss roll to enclose filling. Refrigerate at least 2 hours to firm.
