Pesto, feta and tomato tart.

This is a recipe from the Cafe Collection (again!). It is also virtually identical to one posted by one of the damsels. It's probably one of the easiest dishes I've prepared in a long time - but no less delicious for being so simple. I served it with left over roasted kumara from yesterday, with broccoli all dressed in a mayo and sour cream mix. Clean plates all around!

Pesto, feta and tomato tart
Makes 8 tarts

2 sheets prerolled puff pastry
8 tbsp basil pesto (I used home made)
2 tomatoes - sliced
100g feta - crumbled
(recipe also calls for black olives, but I left these out as the kids don't like them)

  • Heat oven to 190C
  • Cut each sheet of pastry into quarters, and place onto an oiled baking sheet.
  • Score a 1cm border around each square.
  • Spread a layer of pesto onto each square, topping with a slice of tomato and crumbled feta cheese, and an olive if desired.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until edges are puffed and golden brown.
