Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).

In a skillet, melt butter and sauté shallots. Add all mushrooms and cook until golden, 3,4 min. Add spinach and cook about 1 minute. Remove mushroom mixture from pan and set aside. Deglaze pan with cognac or white wine. Continue cooking for 3 minutes then add Tre Stelle Ricotta, breadcrumbs and sage; stir well. Add to mushroom mixture and combine well. Salt and pepper to taste.

Lay out 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a pastry board and brush with melted butter. Repeat with remaining sheets.

Evenly divide mushroom and Tre Stelle Ricotta mixture among phyllo sheets and spread over surface, leaving edges free. Roll up each sheet firmly and fold ends towards centre to seal in stuffing. Continue rolling to make a cylinder.

Place strudel on a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Let stand before serving. Slice each serving with a serrated knife.


For a change of taste, use Canadian Feta Cheese instead of Ricotta.
