Strawberry Ricotta Tart

chocolate strawberry ricotta tart

I was on a lemon kick a few weeks ago but currently my latest craze is strawberries. Every time I go to the produce market or grocery store, I see big boxes of beautiful strawberries and I have to bring a few home. They are great for breakfast and dessert. Don’t tell anyone but this was my dinner the other night. I includes fruit and cheese so that’s pretty healthy, right?

Seriously, this tart was so easy to put together and I will be making it all summer. My husband is not a big chocolate fan but he thought this had the perfect amount of chocolate on top. I plan on keeping a stash of frozen puff pastry dough in my freezer and making this with other types of fruit too.  I think it would be fantastic with raspberries, cherries or a mixture of different berries. White chocolate drizzle would work too.
