Tomato, basil and ricotta tart (Tarta de tomates, albahaca y ricotta)


The force of life keeps everything going despite pandemics, sorrows and pain.

In between moments of small happiness  (that's what I call it) moments when everything seems fine. They are fleeting but I guess that's life.

I hope all of you are well in the northern hemisphere in summer and here in winter. It has rained very little this year and this really worry me.

We need it to rain. Hopefully August would be more benign in rains.

At least the mountains are snowy and it's been very cold.

Regarding how much I wanted to make this tomato, ricotta and basil tart recipe, it is delicious.

I love this tart recipe, especially the crust.

You can use little tomatos or tomatos slices.

130 grams cherry tomatoes halved

1 1/2 shortcrust pastry ( recipe below  )

80 grams basil leaves

200 grams ricotta cheese

2 eggs lightly beaten

1/3 cup grated cheese

salt and a pinch of black pepper

Shortcrust pastry for tarts

(love this pastry)

100 grams butter diced 

1/2 teaspoon of salt

some cold water (abut 3 tablespoons)


Sift plain flour in a large bowl, add 100 grams diced butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Stir 1/2 teaspoon of salt then add 3  tablespoon water and mix to a firm dough. 

Knead the dough briefly and gently on a floured  surface.

Wrap in cling film and chill while preparing the filling.

Roll and cut pastry to fit 11 cm  x 35 cm rectangular tin(or other tin)   ease it into the tin overlapping any pastry joins. Trim edges and place tin on an oven tray.

Because the filling is wet, the pastry need to be blind baked before adding the mixture.

Trim the bottom all over with a fork and bake about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow pastry case to cool.

In a medium bowl mix the ricota cheese, parmesan cheese , salt, black pepper, and eggs until well incorporated.

Spoon the ricotta mixture evenly over the crust .

  1. Such a lovely savoury tart with ricotta! Tomato and basil are simply great together.

  2. Una torta deliziosa!
    Noi siamo in estate, ma è un'estate particolare. Al sud fa molto caldo e ci sono tanti incendi, qua al nord piove molto spesso e abbiamo avuto danni per la grandine e il vento.
    Speriamo migliori.
