Angela Hartnett‘s elegant ricotta and lemon tart (torta della nonna) would make a fine dessert at a dinner party. Once you’ve made the pastry (which is the fiddly part), the rest is a breeze to make.
Or, try this Italian sultana and ricotta torte, which has a slightly milder flavour.

Make the pastry a day ahead, wrap it well, then keep in the fridge. The cooled, baked tart – without the pine nuts – will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Scatter the pine nuts over and dust with icing sugar to serve.
