Spinach and Ham Savoury Tart

I decided to prepare this tart a few days after Christmas as I had some ricotta cheese left and a puff pastry sheet.

The result was really tasty so I hope you’ll enjoy it too!

  • 900gr frozen spinach
  • 2 eggs
  • 240gr sliced ham
  • 250gr ricotta cheese
  • 70gr grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry or shortcrust
  • 1 beaten egg yolk
  • salt
  • pepper

Cooking Utensils:

  • greaseproof paper
  • 1 large bowl
  • 1 non-stick pan
  • 1 round cooking tin
  • 1 pastry-brush


  1. Place the frozen spinach in your pan on a medium heat adding a pinch of salt, and let them cook until they are completely defrosted
  2. Let them drain in a sieve and when cool squeeze them using your hands, in order to eliminate all the excess water
  3. Preheat the oven to 200°
  4. Place your spinach on a chopping board and roughly chop them
  5. Mix in your bowl the ricotta cheese with the eggs and a tiny bit of ground black pepper, and keep mixing until smooth. Add the spinach, the grated Parmesan cheese and the ham finely chopped and mix until you have a homogeneous mixture
  6. Line your cooking tin first with greaseproof paper and then with puff pastry
  7. Using a fork make tiny holes in the base of your pastry and fill with the spinach and ricotta cheese mixture. Use the rest of the pastry to make a lattice top for the tart and brush it with beaten egg yolk
  8. Put in a hot oven for about 40mins until pastry will look golden

Serve warm and enjoy!
