Courgette and parmesan tart

  • serves 4
  • Easy

This creamy courgette tart makes for a delicious midweek meal. Make sure you slice the courgettes really thinly – not only will they look nicer, but they'll also become more crisp.



  • ready-rolled puff pastry 1 × 375g sheet
  • courgettes 3, thinly sliced
  • garlic 2 cloves, sliced
  • olive oil
  • mascarpone 4 tbsp
  • parmesan 50g, grated


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200c/fan 180c/gas 6. Unroll the pastry onto a baking sheet and score a border 2cm in from the edge.

  • Step 2

    Toss the courgettes and garlic with the olive oil and lots of seasoning.

  • Step 3

    Mix the mascarpone with half the parmesan and spread inside the border. Arrange the courgettes in overlapping rows. Bake for 15 minutes, then scatter with parmesan. Bake for another 15-20 minutes.
