  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan) and lightly dust a large board
  2. Place the pastry sheet on the board, cut in half and spread one half with the 'Nduja Pesto
  3. Place the other half on top of the first half, with the Pesto in between. Transfer to a baking sheet and put in the fridge to chill for about 20 mins
  4. Remove from the fridge and slice into lengths about 2 cm thick. Then loosely twist each one a few times
  5. Brush with the beaten egg and put in the oven for about 12-15 mins or until golden and puffed. Remove from the oven, leave to cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a serving plate
