1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease a baking tray with oil spray. Place silver beet in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 1 minute, or until wilted. Drain. Rinse under cold water.
2 Squeeze as much water as possible from silver beet. Finely chop and place in a bowl. Add ricotta, parmesan, lemon rind, juice, and nutmeg. Stir until combined.
3 Place pastry on a flat surface. Cut each sheet in 4 long strips. Cover with a damp tea towel to prevent drying out.
4 Spray 1 strip with oil. Place 1 tablespoon of mixture in a corner of pastry. Fold diagonally to form a triangle over filling. Continue folding, forming a triangle. Place on prepared tray. Continue with remaining pastry and filling. Spray triangles with oil, and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Serve with tzatziki.
