This is a light summery tomato tart with a buttery shortcrust pastry base which is all very moreish. If you don’t feel like making the base yourself, you can grab a good quality store-bought version instead. That cuts down your cooking time considerably to 30-35 minutes, leaving you more time to do the dishes…or enjoy a nice glass of wine.
Ricotta is the perfect creamy filling for a tart, providing the oomph for all manner of ingredients. The beautiful thing about ricotta is that it brings out the flavour of whatever you pair it with. Olympus Ricotta is full-fat ricotta, made purely without preservatives or additives. The texture is soft and open, so it is wonderful to showcase it as simply as possible. What better simple combination could there be than tomato and basil?
