A mouth-watering meal you can whip up in 30 minutes flat.

4 makes 2 tarts




  • 16 sheets filo pastry
  • 500g smooth ricotta
  • 1/2 cup (40g) finely grated parmesan
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs
  • 1 lemon, zested, juiced
  • 3 bunches asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • Extra virgin olive oil, to serve
  • Halved mixed medley tomatoes, to serve
  • Baby rocket leaves, to serve



Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place 1 filo sheet on a clean work surface. Spray with olive oil spray. Top with another filo sheet and spray with oil. Continue layering with 6 more filo sheets to create a stack. Place on a tray. Repeat with remaining filo to make another stack.


Combine ricotta, parmesan, garlic, eggs and lemon juice in a bowl. Season. Spread evenly over filo, leaving a 3cm border. Arrange asparagus over ricotta mixture. Fold filo edges over the border.


Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15-20 mins or until golden brown and ricotta is heated through. Sprinkle with lemon zest and drizzle with oil. Season. Serve with tomato and rocket leaves.
