If you’re looking for a tasty way to use your summer zucchini, this light and savory Zucchini Ricotta and Goat Cheese Tart is for you.
The mix of ricotta, goat cheese, garlic, and basil deliciously enhances the mild flavor of the thin layer of zucchini.
This vegetarian Zucchini Ricotta and Goat Cheese Tart is my new favorite for this summer, perfect for a light meal or potluck. You can enjoy it hot or cold, with a salad on the side!
I have to confess that I was a little lazy this time. I bought a puff pastry from the store to try. Next time I will opt for my Pie Crust (Pâte Brisée) instead. In my savory tarts, I much prefer its light, crispy texture and how it doesn’t crumble after cooking. What about you?
