super simple appetizer pastries

It is always when my fridge is almost empty that I develop the best recipes… I had some puff pastry left, I had just received a jar of home made dried tomatoes and I had some ricotta left so I ended up making these little heaven appetizer pastries…

The great thing is that you can use any ingredient you want (ham, mozzarella, salami, fresh tomatoes, gorgonzola, pesto…) and you could even go for a sweet version (bananas and chocolate for example), the choices are unlimited!

Appetizer pastries

You will need

1 puff pastry roll

dried tomatoes (one per pastry)

ricotta

1 zucchini

dried oregano, pepper and fleur de sel salt

Pre-heat the oven at 180c.

Cut the pastry (I used a glass) and place the discs in the fridge while preparing the other ingredients.

Mix the ricotta with the salt, pepper and oregano.

Cut the zucchini in thin slices using a mandolin.

Take the discs, spread some ricotta on top, place the zucchini slices and top with one dried tomato.

Sprinkle with grated parmigiano and dried oregano. Put in the oven until golden brown (about 15-20 minutes)
