Ricotta Cheese Tart with Fried Morel Mushrooms
Why I Love This Recipe
I had received 2 lbs of morel mushrooms as a prize and was looking for something fabulous to make. This was perfect!
Ingredients You'll Need
0 oz Ricotta Cheese (I think I used full fat...I'm not one to buy low fat anything. I have proof)
3 large eggs
3 green onions, chopped
A handful of Fried Morel Mushrooms (I'll talk about that in a later post)
2 garlic cloves, minced
Zest from one lemon
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tablespoon Herbs de Provence
Asparagus Stalks, blanched until until barely tender
4 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1 slice of a medium sized tomato (the orange tomato I think made a pretty contrast in color)
1 partially cooked tart shell
Mix together the ricotta cheese, eggs, green onions, fried 'shrooms, garlic, lemon zest, herb de provence, salt and pepper
Pour the mixture into your partially baked tart shell. Arrange your tomatoes and asparagus on top....pushing them in a little to make sure they're nice and snug, but not drowning.
Bake at 375' F for about 30 - 45 minutes.
Serve and enjoy the beauty of not only the presentation, but the aroma and flavors that blend together so nicely.
