I had several requests to share some Easter Brunch ideas. I love the idea of a tart at brunch. I recently made this one and it was so yummy. The base is a ricotta mixture and it pairs so well with the broccolini and the feta adds the perfect salty finish. This is great served warm or room temperature.
Below this recipe I am also sharing some other Easter brunch ideas.
1 sheet puff pastry thawed (this can be found in the freezer section)
2 heads broccolini
6 tablespoons pesto
1 teaspoon lemon zest
4 oz feta cheese
Roll out the puff pastry dough to an even rectangle. Score a 1 inch border around it with a knife. In a bowl combine the ricotta, pesto, a teaspoon of lemon zest and salt and pepper. Spread this mixture over the puff pastry. Take a brush and brush the scored edge with olive oil. Cut the broccolini into similar size pieces and toss with olive oil. Lay the broccolini on the pastry tart I alternated laying it each way. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Crumble the feta over top. Bake at 350 degrees about 20-25 minutes until pastry is lightly browned. Remove from oven and cut into squares.
