Zucchini and Ricotta Galette

Zucchini and Ricotta Galette

A savory zucchini and ricotta galette with a super flaky pastry made from scratch in just 5 minutes. Plus a mix of 3 cheeses makes this galette amazing!

There it is! A beautiful and golden savory galette with zucchini and ricotta. I love savory galettes and I love sweet ones as well. But this galette is special, it reminds me of my savory cheese pies which I love so much.

But you know what I’m in love with lately? Roasted minced garlic! I’ve used it before many times, but I’m now loving it even more. I used some in this galette which I mixed with some olive oil and boy that olive oil is gold! I could spread that on bread and eat it just like that.
