How to prepare Potato and tuna pie

To make tuna and potato savory cake, start by placing the potatoes in a pan with cold water; boil them for around 40 minutes from when the water comes to the boil, depending on their size; check they are done by piercing them with a fork 1. In the meantime, dice the provola cheese 2 and finely chop the parsley 3.

Add the grated Grana 7, the diced cheese 8 and finely chopped parsley 9. Season with salt and pepper, then stir thoroughly to amalgamate everything.

Place a puff pastry disc in an 11" mold lined with parchment paper and perforate the surface with a fork 10. Add the mixture 11 and smooth with the back of a spoon 12.

Cover with the second puff pastry disc and seal the edges by pressing them together and turning them inwards 13. Perforate the surface too 14; bake in a static oven preheated to 392? for around 40 minutes. Once baked, remove your tuna and potato savory cake and serve it hot or cold 15!
