If you do not want to make your own pastry, you can simply use ready-made puff pastry instead.
To add a little extra richness to the sauce, try adding a couple of tablespoons of the vinegar from the pickled walnuts to the pan before topping up with water. The leftover vinegar also makes a fabulous salad dressing or is perfect for adding to tomato sauce. I've tried it in my Barbecue Chicken and Bacon Pasta
and my Smokey Tomato Roast Potatoes
and it works brilliantly.

What to do with any leftover pastry
If you have any scraps of leftover pastry then bundle it up into a ball, roll it out and cut it into shapes (any shape you fancy, simple strips are fine or you can get creative with cutters). Then bake them for about 15 minutes at 200°C/180°C fan until golden. They are perfect for popping into lunchboxes. My boys love them.
