Summer tomato tart with ricotta

Tomatoes steal the show in this quick summer tomato tart. A star role that they quite rightly fulfill, because in the summer you see tomatoes in the most beautiful shapes and colours. It’s their season and so the prices are friendly. This cake is suitable for two people as an evening meal (if you are a big eater, make a salad or a soup with it). If you don’t feel like messing with filo dough, you can also opt for a large roll of puff or flammkuchen dough.

Tomato risotto with parmesan and lemon

The Italian kitchen is known for its  cucina povera  (the poor man’s kitchen) and therefore has countless low budget recipes. So is this tomato risotto. Parmesan budget tip: large pieces of Parmesan cheese quickly seem very expensive. Yet they are the cheapest of all (and also the tastiest). So do not think that you are faster and cheaper with prepackaged grated cheese Do you want a big piece, but still pay attention to the small ones? Then choose a supermarket’s own brand. The taste is almost identical, but the price is much friendlier.
