1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Place a large baking sheet on the top shelf of the oven.

2. Unroll the pastry onto a sheet of baking paper and use a small knife to score a 2cm border around the edge. Brush the edge with the egg and prick the centre of the pastry all over with a fork.

3. Spread the base with the mascarpone and sprinkle over the Parmesan. Drape the meat slices over the base and carefully slide the tart onto the hot baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 mins until the pastry is crisp. Sprinkle over the rocket and pepper and drizzle over the balsamic vinegar. Serve warm.
