First prepare the sauce

3

Cut the garlic into small piece, as well as the Rosemary and some onion

5

The most important step---pour a glass of red for yourself

6
7

Sauté the onion, garlic, rosemary and bay leaf in olive oil. Till onion turns translucent

8
9

Reduce with some red wine until most of it is gone

12

Add tomato paste and water. Simmer on low heat for 45 minutes. Personally I only use San Marzano

13
14

Add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper

15

Now the little secret my grad school roommate's Italian grandmother told me----add a teaspoon of honey. Simmer for 45 minutes. Meanwhile start on the vegetables

16
Low heat.  Slow cook

17

Before starting the vegetables, pour one more Barolo! I always cook better when I'm reasonably "jovial"

18
19

Cut the veggies julienne (onions, red pepper, mushroom)

20
21

Sauté the peppers and onion first in a spoon of olive oil

22
23

Next, sauté the portobellos

24
25

I like to reduce mushrooms in red wine, once they're sautéed...brings out the earthy flavor more

26
27

Next sauté the baby spinach

28
29

Now we'll start on the fillo dough

30

Rollout the dough and mix the egg. You'll use the egg to seal the layers of fillo

31
32

Add a few layers of fillo, using the egg to make it stick

33
34

For each layer, add a thin layer of your veggies and goat cheese

35
36

Remember to brush egg on each layer to make the fillo stick

37

After layers are complete---spread a bit of butter on top, will help with browning. Set in the oven then for 25 min, 375 degrees

38
39

While waiting...feel free to help yourself to another Barolo

40
41

Taste the sauce---shouldn't be acidic tangy, but flavorful. Add more salt or pepper if necessary. Let it simmer gently till Wellington is done

Notice the huge difference in level from when we started
