Basil, Pea and Pancetta Tart


Basil, Pea and Pancetta Tart


This was a delicious, fresh, spring tart that I will definitely make again.
I admit, I didn't follow the recipe to the letter.
It called for infusing the cream with the basil - who has time for that??
For the filling I lightly cooked the pancetta. I use the little cubes from Sainsbury's, which come in a 206g packet, that's twice as much as the recipe, but I added it all anyway ;-)
Then I cooked the broad beans and peas for a few minutes - podding the beans once they had cooled.
I put the filling in my cooked tart case and scattered the chopped basil over the top. Then poured over the beaten eggs, cream and parmesan and baked for 50 minutes.
Simple :-)
