Spicy Chorizo & Ricotta Tart

I have a bit of an addiction to buying & using puff pastry sheets. They're so versatile and can be used to make pies, pasties, sweet treats and also very simple tarts. This dinner was prepared, cooked and served in around 30 minutes, which is perfect when you have a hungry family that wants to eat right now!

Spicy Chroizo & Ricotta Tart - serves 4

250g Ricotta cheese
handful of fresh basil, chopped
pinch of black pepper
1 ready rolled Puff pastry sheet
1 tomato, thinly sliced
half a red onion, thinly sliced
50g Chorizo, sliced
1/2 fresh red chilli, sliced 
Olive oil

  • Mix the ricotta with the basil and black pepper
  • Roll out the puff pastry sheet
  • Score the pastry 1cm around the edge
  • Spread the ricotta onto the pastry leaving a gap around the edge
  • Sprinkle with the tomato, onion, chorizo and chilli
  • Brush around the edge with the olive oil
  • Bake in a preheated 200 C oven for approx 20 minutes, until the pastry is puffed up and golden
I did intend to add some Rocket on top once it came out of the oven but in the rush to feed everyone I forgot!

This is my entry into Nazima & Laura's One Ingredient Challenge, which for March is Chilli & being hosted on Laura's blog.

  1. I also love puff pastry and always keep some in the freezer, it is great stuff. Your topping sounds like something that has my name on it. Ricotta, chorizo, chilli, red onion all together sounds just gorgeous. What a lovely idea and thanks for linking this recipe to One Ingredient! I am loving how many savoury entries there are this month :))

  2. This looks amazing and like the perfect food for springtime. You'll just need a recipe to dissolve rain clouds and make the sun shine x
