Grana Padano Roasted Carrot Tart

Sweet roasted carrots in puff pastry combine with the delicious, nutty flavor of Grana Padano in this elegant tart.
 

Ingredients

   1 (14-ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
 1lb multi-colored carrots, halved lengthwise

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 teaspoon salt, divided 8 oz ricotta
2oz Grana Padano cheese, finely grated

    1 garlic clove, grated
       Milk or cream, as needed depending on ricotta

       Dill sprigs, garnish

Directions

Heat oven to 425 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry into a 10-by-14-inch rectangle. Using a paring knife, lightly score a border around the perimeter of the puff pastry about a 1/2-inch away from the edge. Place pastry on a lined baking sheet; with a fork prick inside border. Bake on top rack until puff pastry is lightly golden, 15-20 minutes. Use the fork to press the dough within the border so it's flat, leaving the border puffed.

 

Toss carrots and fennel with oil, season with ½ teaspoon of the salt; spread into a single layer on a baking sheet keeping the purple carrots separate to avoid coloring the others. Roast on bottom rack (underneath the puff pastry) until edges are golden brown but carrots are crisp-tender, 15- 20 minutes.

 

While puff pastry and carrots are in the oven, combine ricotta, Grana Padano and garlic. Season with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt.

 

Spread cheese mixture inside border of cooled pastry. If mixture is too thick to spread, thin out with milk or cream as needed. Arrange carrots in a single layer on top. Bake until veggies are tender and edges of pastry are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Garnish with dill. Cut into sixths or eighths. Serve with a side salad.
