Preparation

  • Sieve the flour onto a clean work surface and make a well in the middle.
  • Place the egg and a pinch of salt in the middle of the well.
  • Add knobs of butter, using a knife to chop up into small pieces and rub together to make a smooth dough.
  • Wrap in clingfilm and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, wash and drain the Swiss chard.
  • Cut the green leaves into strips and chop the stalks into 2 cm pieces.
  • Wash and finely chop the spring onions. Heat the oil in a large pan.
  • Place the Swiss chard pieces and spring onions into the pan and fry until almost tender, stirring continually.
  • Add the sliced green leaves and cook until wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200 °C. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and place in a greased dish ca. 28 cm in diameter, leaving a 3 cm high edge.
  • Prick the base of the pastry all over using a fork.
  • Mix the ricotta cheese with the eggs and the cream.
  • Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Spread half of the mixture onto the pastry base.
  • Scatter the Swiss chard over the top and then the remaining ricotta-cream mix.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the grated cheese and the chopped pine nuts over the top and continue to bake for another 15 minutes.
