Add minces, tomato paste, dried herbs, salt and pepper, then stir until well combined.
Preheat oven to 200°C. Put 1 sheet of puff pastry on a clean and dry work surface. Cut off the top ¹⁄³ of sheet and reserve.

Bake for 35 minutes or until pastry is golden and filling is cooked through. Slice and serve with relish and cos lettuce salad on the side.
