  1. Remove the leftover sausage ragu from the fridge for 30 mins before cooking, so that it comes to room temperature. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Mix together the soft cheese and chilli paste in a small bowl.
  2. Unroll the puff pastry on its paper and transfer to a large baking sheet. Score a 2cm border around the pastry with a knife, then prick the space inside the border all over with a fork.
  3. Spread the chilli-soft cheese over the pastry, keeping it inside the scored border, then spoon over the sausage ragu. Bake for 20-25 mins until golden and bubbling, then leave for 2 mins to cool slightly. Scatter over the parsley, spring onions and crushed chillies (if using), then slice and serve with the mixed leaf salad.
