We use the tart-shell method for a fuss-free version of the classic Greek spinach-and-cheese pastry. A little pimiento, brightened with vinegar, adds pop; you could also sub chopped olives. Let the spinach drain while the crust bakes. Build and finish baking the tart shortly before guests arrive.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Combine spinach and onion in a microwave-safe bowl; cover and microwave at HIGH 1 to 2 minutes. Drain. Let stand in colander 5 minutes, pressing with the back of a spoon to release excess liquid.

Step 3

Roll out puff pastry to a 14- x 12-inch rectangle on a large piece of parchment paper. Place parchment paper with puff pastry on a baking sheet. Score a 1-inch border around edge of puff pastry with a paring knife; prick area inside border several times with a fork. Bake for 14 minutes or until light golden. Remove from oven.

Step 4

Combine spinach mixture, ricotta, garlic, salt, and feta in a bowl. Spread spinach mixture over puff pastry, inside border. Bake for 13 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Step 5

Combine pimientos, oregano, and vinegar in a bowl. Sprinkle pimiento mixture and pine nuts over tart. Cut into 12 slices.
