Homemade savory tart
For a different dinner than usual I thought I’d prepare a nice one savory tart filled with: cottage cheese, onions and potatoes. An almost perfect combination, but absolutely modifiable. In fact, depending on your tastes, it can be reinvented and modified. For example, you can opt for the addition of cooked ham or, completely change it.
The most important thing is to be able to prepare an excellent one shortcrust pastry. For example, I decided to flavor it with rosemary but, again depending on your preferences, you can decide to omit it.
The dough is absolutely not difficult but, on the contrary, very practical! There is no need for instant yeast (as is believed), but only with very few ingredients: awater, flour, butter or oil, salt or Parmesan and rosemary.
It is a dish that should be served cold and that can also be prepared for a different aperitif than usual. It is no coincidence that it can easily be placed in the category “appetizers”; However, for the preparation of the filling I relied on the beautiful knives Friedr.Dick from the Pink Spirit series. Thanks to these I was able to chop and peel potatoes and onions in a very short time.
