Rustic Tart with Strawberries, Rhubarb, and Ricotta
This has inadvertantly turned into "Conquer My Baking Fears" week, with bread yesterday and a pie crust today. I have been on a lustful hunt for rhubarb for a couple of weeks now, so when I found it yesterday I nearly squealed: I could finally make Nosheteria's incredible looking Strawberry, Rhubarb, and Ricotta Galette!
My creation didn't turn out quite as pretty as its inspiration, resulting in me dubbing it a "rustic tart". But the recipe is otherwise the exact same, so please do click on the link above and try it for yourself. I used some goats milk ricotta that I made fresh this morning, and I can only imagine that made it all the better.
This light tart isn't too sweet and really showcases the tart fruit and creamy ricotta. Decadent as this may sound, I think it would be wonderful for breakfast.
