Ingredients

• 1 packet ready rolled puff pastry

• 6 tsp pesto (approximately)

• Few mixed ripe cherry tomatoes

• 4 small courgettes

• 8 asparagus spears (cut into 3cm pieces keeping head pieces for the top of the tart)

• Basil leaves

• 100g mozzarella

• Splash of olive oil

Method

Preparation time: 10mins

Cooking time: 20mins

Serves 4-6

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C

2. Unroll the pastry and divide into equal sized rectangles. Using a knife, gently score a rectangle about 1cm inside to create the surface for the ingredients. Using the back of a teaspoon spread the centre of each rectangle with pesto, taking care to avoid the edges

3. In a mixing bowl, squash the tomatoes before adding the asparagus, courgettes, and peppers and mix thoroughly

4. Add the basil leaves and a splash of olive oil and mix together. Pile a little of the vegetable mixture on each pesto-smeared tartlet

5. Break the mozzarella and place small bits on the top of each tart

6. Bake on Low Humidity or SteamBake™ at 200°C for 20 minutes. (If using SteamBake™ remember to add 100ml water and preheat for 5 minutes before baking)

Chef Tip: The dish works beautifully finished with a drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar
