Instructions: Savory tart with ricotta cheese and grilled zucchini

Mix flour with salt in a bowl. Add oil, sparkling water and mix. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and homogeneous. Create a ball, wrap it inplastic wrap, and let rest for half an hour at room temperature.

Wash the zucchini and cut off the tips. Using a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer, cut the zucchini into long strips (about 0,5 cm high). Brush with some olive oil and grill on a cast iron, frying pan with thick bottom or a barbecue. Set aside and let cool down completely.

For the filling: mix ricotta cheese with egg, grated parmesan and thyme. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Roll out the dough into a 2 to 3 mm thick disc. Move the disc onto a round baking tray covered with baking paper. Add your ricotta mix and spread it evenly.

Put grilled zucchini over the ricotta and add some pieces of gorgonzola on top. Fold the dough to cover the zucchini and cook in the preheated oven at 180 °C for 35 – 40 minutes.

Let it cool down before serving.

lot of love. B.
