    Recipe for 11 boats


Ingredients:
  • Puff pastry, pre-rolled (26 x 42 cm)
  • 1/2 glass of Pesto Rosso and 1/2 Glas of Pesto Classico
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small zucchetti
  • 11 toothpicks

Preparation:
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C
  • Cut cherry tomatoes in halves
  • Dice zucchetti into 1.5 cm pieces
  • Cut 11 rectangles from the pastry (ca. 6 x 12.5 cm, see cutting tip)
  • Cut 11 triangles from the pastry (ca. 6 cm, see cutting tip)
  • Roll the long sides of the rectangles a bit inward
  • Fold corners inward to shape the boat
  • Generously cover the boats with pesto sauce (1 large spoon per boat)

  • Press two tomatoe halves onto each green boat
  • Press two zuchetti pieces onto each red boat
  • Stick the pastry triangles onto the toothpicks (pastry sails)
  • Stick the pastry sails into the tomatoes and zucchetti pieces
  • Fix the corners of each sail to the rear and front of its boat
  • Put the boats onto a baking tray and bake for 12 - 15 minutes (depending on the oven) near the bottom of the oven.
  • Serve warm


Tips:
