Vegetable tarts are very popular in Italy, they have been probably invented justto use up leftovers. As a mum, I often prepare veggies tart to transform veggies into a more unusual plate… especially when we’re talking about spinach! Pasqualina tart is for sure the most well-known tart in Italy… it’s name derives from Pasqua, that means Easter, as it’s a spring-time traditional plate to be served during Easter time.
