Thanksgiving Leftover Green Bean and Mushroom Tart

Holiday season is officially upon us. The weather is cooler, leaves are falling, and many of us are beginning to plan dinner parties and Thanksgiving celebrations—long lists of delicious food we plan on serving our friends and loved ones. I always have a much bigger imagination and make way too much food for holiday dinners, and then am stuck with a ton of leftovers.

This year, I’m elevating my leftovers and pairing them with La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and a delicious recipe for a Green Bean and Mushroom Tart made from leftover side dishes!

This leftover tart is not only unbelievably easy- it is actually incredibly adaptable as well. While I am making mine with some simple roasted green beans and my recipe for perfect sauteed mushrooms, it could also be made with this amazing recipe for green bean supreme casserole, or even this recipe for charred green beans with smoked bacon and persimmons!

This delicious green bean and mushroom tart is made from leftovers- and is amazingly delicious!

Leftover Green Bean and Mushroom Tart

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4


  • 2/3 of a sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup leftover green beans (or as many as you like/have)
  • 1/4 cup leftover mushrooms


  1. Prep a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add 2/3 of a puff pasty sheet to the baking sheet (I simply remove one of the folds form the sheet when unwrapping it as most brands come folded into thirds).
  3. Spread ricotta cheese on puff pastry.
  4. Layer green beans and mushrooms on pastry.
  5. Add a little crumbled ricotta to the top.
  6. Go around the tart with a fork, making indentations around the edges.
  7. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until puff pastry is puffy and brown.

This tart is made from leftover green beans and mushrooms- and is absolutely delicious!
