5-minute meal idea: ricotta and asparagus tart

By Thursdays I'm burnt out – groceries are getting low and so is my energy for making dinner after another long day in the office. As such, I love creating simple, easy-to-prepare dishes that take very little effort but still taste great. This ricotta and asparagus tart is something I threw together using basic ingredients I had in my fridge. It takes only five minutes to prepare and it tastes great. All you need is: - 1 package of frozen puff or phyllo pastry (whatever you've got works) - 1 bundle of asparagus, trimmed and washed - feta cheese - ricotta cheese - olive oil - salt and black pepper Bake the puff or phyllo pastry according to package directions, but take it out of the oven when it's about halfway cooked. Mix together a small bowl of feta and ricotta cheese and spread a thin layer all over the pastry. Top the cheese mixture with the asparagus, drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Throw the whole thing back in the oven and bake until the pastry is fully cooked and the asparagus is tender-crisp. And the greatest thing about this dish? You can do it with any vegetable you have lying around, whether that's beets, tomatoes or zucchini! Consider your Thursday dinner dilemma solved!
