Step by step recipe:

Make the Parmesan pastry:

Put in the food processor bowl: 100 g flour, 100 g butter, 1 egg, and 100 g Parmigiano reggiano (Parmesan) grated.

Knead on low speed until the dough is evenly mixed. If you don't have a food processor, this can be done by hand.

Shape the pastry into a flat cake, wrap in plastic film, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

The pastry can be made the day before.

Use a non-stick pan that can go both on the hob and in the oven. Pour in 2 tablespoons olive oil and spread over the pan with a brush or if necessary a small piece ofabsorbant paper.

Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).

The basic pastry recipe will make enough for two tarts. Form any pastry that you are not going to use immediately into a flat cake, wrap (as always) in plastic film and keep in the fridge.

And to drink?

A light Italian red wine from the Frioul region, such as Refosco.
