  1. Cut puff dough from corner to corner to get 2 triangles, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with fresh ground pepper, prick slightly with a fork and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven until golden brown. In a very hot pan add a small amount of butter, dredge pheasant in flour and saute until done but not brown. Set aside, add peppers and mushrooms. Add more butter if necessary and saute until done. Now add spinach for a few seconds then remove all from the heat.

Top with the puff dough and a red pepper ring. Garnish plate with the remaining mushrooms and drizzle with sauce.
