Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Roll the pastry from one side to make a rough square, then quarter to make 4 smaller squares. Prick all over with a fork, transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 15 mins until puffed and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, fry the courgettes in the oil until soft and golden, stirring in the garlic for the final min. Mix together the cream, ricotta, egg and Parmesan.
  3. Remove the tarts once they’ve puffed up, flatten the middles and thickly spread the ricotta mixture over, leaving a small border. Scatter over the ham, tomatoes and courgette, season, then bake for 15 mins until the filling is slightly risen and golden. Serve with salad, if you like.

I did it as one big tart. Will try again with no cream the base was too wet even though I cooked it with the topping for more than the recipe said. Very tasty though hubby had 2nd's unheard off1

These were easy to put together and were light and tasty. If I make these again, I will also halve the ham and tomatoes - far too much for the recipe.

These tarts are really easy and very very tasty. I didn't use the courgette or garlic, but opted for a tomato and ham alone with a sprinkling of torn basil at the end.

I would halve the amount of ham and tomatoes suggested in the recipe.

Thought this was very tasty. I would use slightly less topping next time as I struggled to get it all on.
