Cherry Tomato, Goat Cheese and Spinach Puff Pastry Tarts
Ready to use Puff Pastry Sheets with three easy to find refrigerated ingredients in your home can make these 15 minutes quick appetizer tarts. I love these tarts because of two reasons. First, I just told you - all ingredients in the pantry. In-fact you can even keep one or two frozen puff pastry sheets in freezer too. Second, this tart has two of my favorite ingredients - tangy-creamy goat cheese and flaky puff pastry.

Richness and creaminess in one slice of heaven!! Don't you think??

Its rightly said that party is as good as its appetizers. And if appetizers can be made quickly, under-budget, and at-home, that is even better!!

To save time on cutting and serving, you can also cut puff pastry squares or buy pre-cut puff pastry sheets to make individual serving of these scrumptious tarts.

For topping variations, you can use basil or cilantro pesto instead of spinach and pineapple instead of cherry tomatoes.

I have included recipe for my kind of Bruschetta Seasoning in ingredients list. Feel free to skip it or use store bought. This seasoning will also go great on pizza or tomato basil pasta. Make some today and enjoy!!
