  2. NOTE

    Puff Pastry is a quick and easy option but this recipe also tastes and looks great using the Basic Cook Book Short Crust Pastry for your Tart Shell. If you have 10 minutes to spare i reccomend trying a short crust pastry shell to take this tart to another level. 

    You can also make your own Ricotta Cheese to use with this Tart.

    Loved it! Easy to follow instructions. This is a great meat free dish I will be cooking again. I sprinkled some feta and Parmesan on top as which worked well too. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
