- Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. In a bowl, combine chicken mince, carrot, courgette, garlic, chives, thyme and pepper.
- Place one sheet of filo on a flat surface. Cover the other sheets with a slightly damp tea towel to keep them from drying out. Spray one sheet with oil, lay another sheet on top and repeat with four sheets total.
- Divide chicken mixture in two. Spoon one half of the mixture on the prepared filo sheets, along one longer edge, and spread out to make a long sausage. Roll up to make a sausage roll. Place on lined baking tray, with the join underneath. Spray with oil and cut into nine pieces. Repeat with the remaining filo pastry and chicken mixture. (You can do this ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to cook.) Bake for 20-25 minutes, until inside is cooked through, with no pink juices, and pastry is golden.
- Meanwhile, in a bowl combine all tomato sauce ingredients. Serve sausage rolls with sauce on the side.
