goats' cheese, spinach and red pepper puff pastry tart.


this is my current favourite "cheat eat" which would be perfect for an easy midweek meal, sliced up with a salad for lunch or cut into pieces as party food. all you need is a puff pastry sheet, a sauce base and some tasty toppings! here i made it with tomato and marscapone sauce, wilted spinach, sliced somerset goats' cheese, half a red pepper and a couple of button mushrooms. put it in the oven on 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes and bam it's ready to devour!

you begin by laying the puff pastry sheet on a baking paper lined tray and folding in the sides to double up the edges.


layer on the sauce - i have also made this with a red pepper and ricotta pesto base! :)


sprinkle on your toppings of choice! i wilted my spinach with a dash of water in a saucepan for 1-2 minutes. 


place in the middle of the oven for the 10-15 minutes until golden. 


there you have it - shh you might even trick people into thinking you made the puff pastry from scratch! ;) 


what would you have on yours? if you like this you might like my 5-a-day veggie lasagne :)
