Roasted pepper & tomato puff pastry tart

I made this for myself and Josh, for dinner, the other night and I didn't intend to blog about it initially. However, when I got it out the oven and it looked pretty (as pretty as a tart can look...) I couldn't resist taking some photos and making up a little post.

This was such an easy meal to make. I took some pre-rolled puff pastry (I went for the 'light' version to make it a little healthier) and laid it out onto a baking tray. I then scored a square around the pastry, leaving a 2cm border around the edge. Don't cut all the way through, just about half way through the layers of pastry. Pop this in the oven for about 10 mins.

After 10 mins are up, get the plain pastry out the oven. You need to squash down the center part of pastry so you can fit your filling in! Spread some pesto over the base of your tart, then add thinly sliced peppers, tomatoes, black pepper and a few dots of cheese onto the pastry and pop it back into the oven. Bake for another 10 - 15 minutes until the peppers and tomatoes are softened and the cheese has melted.

I served this with garlic and herb new potatoes and a side salad. It was really tasty and really simple to make! I took some leftovers into work the next day and it was really nice to eat cold too - it's kinda like a pizza!

I'd love to know if you decide to make this, let me know what you think! :) x
