  2. Stir together the ricotta cheese, parm cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Stir in the fresh basil and parsley set aside.
  3. Spray 8 small ramekins. Fill each ramekin half way up with cheese mixture. Top with sausage marinara mixture.
  4. Roll out the puff pastry sheets using a ramekin cut out a round piece of dough about an inch larger than the diameter of the ramekin. Place the dough over the top of the ramekin pressing carefully down the sides.
  5. brush with egg and water wash.
    Bake at 400 degree for about 30 minutes until dough is browned and no longer doughy.
