  1. Check 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
  2. Check 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  3. Check 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  4. Check 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  5. Check 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  6. Check 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  7. Check 1 sheet puff pastry
  8. Check 1 small onion, very thinly sliced
  9. Check 2 tablespoons olive oil
  10. Check 2 tablespoons pine nuts


  1. Heat oven to 400° F. In a large bowl, combine the cheeses, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and thyme and mix well.
  2. Working on a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry to a 9-by-13-inch rectangle and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  3. Spread the ricotta mixture on top of the pastry, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges. Fold over the sides. Place the onions on top and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil.
  4. Bake until the pastry is light golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the remaining oil.
  5. Meanwhile, in a skillet over low heat, toast the pine nuts until fragrant and golden, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the nuts over the tart..
