Zucchini Puff Pastry Tart

"✨ R E C I P E ✨ It’s prime zucchini time, and I can’t keep up — the zucchini stock in my kitchen doesn’t seem to have an end! I used a few spare zucchini in this delectable zucchini, ricotta, and garlic tart (or galette if you’re feeling fancy). It’s super easy, and looks way too impressive and glorious for the actual amount of effort it takes (very little). check out my stories for a how-to recipe (also saved to my highlights!). recipe in caption below, too, because you can’t have enough recipes saved in enough places, can you? ✨ #afsanaliza"

A Note from Feedfeed

Like Afsana said, it's PRIME TIME for zucchini and what better way to dress up this summer squash than with puff pastry and lots of ricotta and garlic! Serve this as an appetizer, at brunch or even with a charcuterie board and a glass of your favorite white wine.
