Sometimes you just gotta say “yes” to those cravings. Say yes to the fresh ingredients, the farmers market fresh spinach, the creamy ricotta you picked up from the store the other day, the freshly crushed garlic, to the fluffy light pastry tart you know will feel buttery against your lips. This Mushroom Ricotta Tart was exactly what I was looking for!
Before starting, ensure you have read all instructions for your puff pastry dough. Normally, store-bought frozen puff pastry will requiring thawing in the refrigerator overnight or, 2 hours in room temperature.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and coat baking sheet with butter. Place puff pastry on top.
On a pan over medium heat, melt butter then cook mushrooms until they sweat. Add spinach until completely cooked. Remove from heat.
Add cheese into a medium-sized bowl and fold in your mushrooms spinach mixture; season to taste.
Spread completely combined mixture onto the thawed puff pastry but be careful to avoid the edges (as this will give it a nice crust like a pizza).
Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Or, if desired, use a basting brush and brush the crust with oil.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Bon appetit!
