Would you like a little snack or something quick and easy for lunch?

These tarts made with puff pastry and filled with ricotta, egg, zucchini and tomatoes are a good idea for something tasty and easy to prepare.

Little tarts like these look quite cute and can also make a good starter served with a few salad leaves, infact this is something I made for a dinner party recently and they went down really well!

This recipe makes 4 tartlets but if you prefer you can make a single larger pie.

  • Prep Time : 25 minutes
  • Cook Time : 20 minutes
  • Yield : 4



Wash and cut the tomatoes into quarters, sprinkle them with salt and leave them to drain in a colander.

With a fork whip the egg, add the ricotta, the parmesan, salt and pepper and mix well.
