Vegetables and ricotta little tarts






asparagus and parmesan





with ham and cheese


I made these little tarts today, the original recipe is with vegetables and ricotta, delicious to me and daugther who is vegetarian but my son isn't   so I made someones with ham and ricotta:) (always happen me are twins but eat really different:)
Anyway the crust of these tart is amazing! you can make more crust and freeze.
 You can top with zucchini slices, asparagus, eggplants, or mushrooms.
Adapted from a recipe of Ladies'home Journal

Ingredients 
 (8 servings)
Crust
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) very cold unsalted butter
1 egg yolk

In a food processor (or by hand) combine flour and salt.
Add butter and pulse until butter is the size of peas. Whisk together the yolk and 1/2 cup of cold water.
If you use the processor drizzle the liquid while pulsing to combine.
Turn dough onto a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a ball.
Place in fridge about 30 minutes.
On a floured surface roll dough and cut to the shape of  little pans.
Preheat oven at 180°c.
Line the little pan with aluminum foil, pressing foil  and fill with dry beans and place on a baking sheet.
Bake until crust is set and just starting to brown evenly, about 20 minutes.
Remove beans and foil and bake for 5 minutes more.
Let chill completely before filling.
 
Filling
 
Spring vegetables
(like asparagus, zucchini, mushrooms or sliced onions)
or prosciuto or ham in slices.
 3/4 cup of ricotta
3/4 cup grated parmesan
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 eggs
salt an pepper
1 clove garlic finely minced (optative)
 
In a mixing bowl whisk together the ricotta, parmesan, cream, garlic salt and pepper  until smooth.
Divide the cream between baked tarts shells.
Top tarts with vegetables like asparagus or zucchinis or ham and bake about 20 to 25 minutes.
Cool slightly then remove  tarts from the pans and serve with parmesan cheese .
 






EN ESPAÑOL

Tartaletas con vegetales y ricotta
















 
Hice estas pequeñas tartas hoy y recomiendo absolutamente la masa, es sencillamente deliciosa, tambien se puede preparar el doble de cantidad y congelar. Es estupenda para pequeñas tartaletas como estas, yo usé unos moldes tipo muffins pero se pueden hacer en un molde grand etambien.
Las rellené con la crema de ricotta y espárragos pero tambien se pueden rellenar con jamón o champiñones etc.
 
Ingredientes
(8 tartitas)


Masa
2 |/2 tazas  de harina sin polvos
1 cucharadita de sal
1 taza de mantequilla muy fría(ojalá sin sal)
agua fría
 
Preparación
 
 Para la masa que se puede hacer en un procesador o a mano en un bol (generalmente la hago a mano)
En un bol mezclar harina y la sal,agregar la mantequilla y con las manos unir deshaciendo que quede como migas de pan.
Agregar la yema y 1/2 taza de agua fría uniendo bien hasta hacer una masa y formar una bola.
Envolver en film plástico y dejar en el refrigerador 30 minutos.
Despues retirar del refrigerador y estirar sobre una mesa enharinada. Cortar de la forma de los moldes que se van a usar.
