  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat oil in a large pan and cook shallots and garlic for 2-3 mins until softened. Stir in mushrooms and courgettes and cook over a high heat for 5-7 mins until golden.
  2. Stir in the rice and cook for 2 mins, then add wine and cook for 3 mins until the liquid has evaporated. Add a ladleful of hot stock and cook, stirring constantly. Continue in this way until all the stock has been used up. Stir in the tarragon, cheese, crème fraîche, pesto and walnuts and plenty of seasoning. Cool.
  3. Fill a 900ml/1½pt pie dish with the rice mixture. Brush the edge of the dish with water. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use to cover the filling, trimming the edges and pressing down well to seal. Brush with milk, place on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 mins until crisp and golden.

Really enjoyed this recipe, replaced the teragon with parsley and the courgettes with an onion squash. Which all worked well

This was really really very nice!

I didn't have any tarragon so used a mix of fennel and thyme - seemed to work ok!

amazing! used store bought shortcrust pastry. had to make own pesto but agree that it gives it a lot of flavor. will make again in the winter.

First of all, I made my pastry with self raising flour instead of plain, my mam always done hers that way and it tastes brill! I also made a 'proper' enclosed tart for this recipe instead of just the top. I also left out the walnuts, used dry tarragon and substituted mixed mushrooms for normal ones! It turned out lovely, nice and filling, enjoyed by all.

This is really nice. A delicious pie. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars was that it has a lot of ingredients, some of which are not that easily available e.g. fresh tarragon. As a principle though the mushrroms, pesto and creme fraiche are the key ones and the others can be substituted. I used apple juice for white wine!
