Method

  1. Preheat the oven. Unroll the pastry and cut into 4 evenly-sized rectangles. Place on baking tray lined with baking parchment and score a border 1 cm from the edges with a sharp knife. Lightly prick the middle area with a fork and brush with the beaten egg.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the onion and courgette for 3-4 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Divide the onion, courgette and mozzarella between the pastry bases, avoiding the 1cm border. Top with the cherry tomato halves and oregano. Cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden and crisp.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in lightly salted water for 10 minutes, or until tender, to be ready at the same time as the tarts. Drain well and toss with the margarine/butter and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Serve the tarts with the buttered new potatoes.
