Pesto & Cherry Tomato Cheese Tart with Puff Pastry Sheet

Puff pastry sheet is a life saver for me, yes they are seriously very handy and you can dish out many super duper delicious dishes out of this flaky buttery puff pastry sheet. Obviously whenever i go to super market, i dont forget to get these pastry sheets and my fridge will always have it. When going through my fridge, i noticed that a small bottle of homemade pesto was sitting for a while. Since i want to finish that bottle of pesto, i decided to go with a simple and cherry tomatoes loaded tart. Some sweet cherry tomatoes, a small bottle of pesto, some grated cheese and a store bought puff pastry sheet is needed to make this extremely delicious tart.  An excellent flaky tart to enjoy with some salad, which is quite suitable for vegetarians.

Though i went with a large sized tart, you can still bake small individual tarts for a starter or else for a party. Though i used pesto, you can prepare this dish with your favourite spread. However you can prepare this same tart with tapenade which is prepared with black olives and capres. Coming to this tart, this recipe calls for just 4 ingredients obviously this tart is going for this week's blogging marathon as am running with 4 ingredients Recipes as theme.Kids will definitely enjoy thoroughly this tart as this tart tastes extremely delicious when served warm.
