Spinach and Artichoke Tart

I am always looking for a good appetizer, whether I want to feed a crowd with light bites, or I’m just looking for something to graze over at a party. I’m always good at making large-scale meals, but it’s the smaller ones that give me a challenge every single time. I have always loved the combination of spinach and artichoke, and I kept thinking about how to make it for a crowd for New Year’s Eve. I didn’t want to just serve it with chips, I wanted to make it memorable, and easy to share.

What better way to make it different than to stick it on a little puff pastry for an easy way to tear and share?

The Ingredients

I really love this recipe because it’s easy! You can use frozen spinach and washed, canned artichokes to get the same result as fresh ingredients in half the time. It also looks beautiful and colorful with the golden crust, lovely shades of green from the veggies and the pop of white from the feta cheese sprinkled over the top. It’s all of the best parts of spinach and artichoke dip on a flaky puff pastry.

I also love anything with cheese, so combining a creamy, cheesy dish with a buttery puff pastry is a sure-fire way to win your guests over. Parmesan, and cream cheese help this dish feel like a classic, while the feta in the dish adds a nice, salty bite where you least expect it.
