Simply good food to share from a mum who likes to feed her kids well. A guide and a little bit of inspiration for those who'd like to cook a bit more but haven't got the time or the energy to meal plan. I'll post daily/weekly updates of recipes that work for me. Good food doesn't have to involve hours of hard work and preparation.

Puff pastry tart with tomatoes, parma ham, asparagus and mozzarella
Sometimes the most simple of meals can be the most delicious. This was certainly one of those meals. I bought a pack of ready rolled puff pastry to which I just scored a line one inch in from the edge. I spread some tomato puree on the base and then sliced some tomatoes and spread them out evenly. I used parma ham, but any ham or pepperoni would be fine. I steamed some asparagus until just tender and placed this on top of the ham. Then I sliced some mozzarella and added this. I cooked the tart in a hot oven about 200ºC, for about 20 minutes, until the pastry was puffed up and golden and the cheese was bubbling. Serve straight away with a nice green salad.
