The Easiest Tart Ever

.....no NOT me!!! I'm referring to Tomato and Mozzarella Tart which I knocked up when my friends Samya and Jackie came to lunch this week.  I got the recipe from the interweb as I'd seen it on some poncey cookery prog years ago and thought it looked rather tasty and... quick!




 Defrost one sheet of Jus-rol frozen puff pastry, score a border approx 1 cm in from the edge and prick the centre a few times with a fork.  Bang in the oven for about 10 mins, meanwhile slice some mozzarella and tomatoes. Remove the pastry from oven and press down the centre part with a spoon, layer on the filling, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Bung back in the oven for a bit longer, can't remember how long as I'd had a few to drink by then.  Remember to remove from oven before it burns, garnish with a few basil leaves et voila! Serve with salad, new spuds and loads of wine.

If you want to impress your friends, do NOT serve on a baking tray like I did!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.  xxxxxxxxxx

  1. This looks really yummy Fiona and oddly enough I make the same thing for lunch sometimes and also with oven roasted veg instead of the tomato too.
    Hope you're having a good weekend and enjoying the sunshine (I've been sneezing all day though lol)

  4. That does look yummy - I wonder if I can get gluten free pastry... and with goats cheese sounds even better!

  6. Me again with a quickie to thank you for your lovely comment and to say that I will be going this year but on the Saturday as Nikky from Polka Doodles will be there and I haven't yet met her and a few other friends are going then too.
    If you can make it that day just let me know as it would be lovely to meet up again.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  7. Oh you KNOW I was going to make some cheeky remark, but then you went and beat me to it, Fiona!
    Looks good, I think I'd like it with goat's cheese. I love your highly accurate and precise cooking instructions; Bung back in the oven for a bit longer, can't remember how long as I'd had a few to drink by then. Remember to remove from oven before it burns. Genius - Fanny Craddock, eat your heart out (and Fiona's tart!) xxxx

  8. My MIL makes this! I'd always imagined she'd been slaving away over a hot cooker but now I know her guilty secret! Definitely my kind of cooking simple, fast and yummy! Vicky x
