Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C and put a large baking sheet inside to heat up.
  2. Boil the spinach for 3-4 mins until defrosted. Drain and press out the excess water with the back of a spoon. Roughly chop, then mix with the soft cheese and some seasoning in a bowl.
  3. Unroll the pastry on its paper and score a 1cm border with a knife, not cutting all the way through. Spoon the spinach mixture into the centre and smooth out up to the border with the back of a spoon. Top with the tomatoes, cut side up, and the chorizo. Drizzle 1 tbsp oil over the filling and season with black pepper.
  4. Using the baking paper to help you, transfer the tart to the hot baking tray, keeping it on the paper. Bake for 20-25 mins until the tomatoes are soft and shrunken and the pastry is cooked through, golden and puffed. Scatter with the basil leaves. Whisk the pesto with 1 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp water, then toss with the lettuce and rocket and serve alongside the tart.
