Savory pie with puff pastry, creamy filling with zucchini and San Marzano tomatoes


Today I made a savory cake created on the go with the ingredients that most of us already have at home: zucchini, tomatoes, cream cheese, store bought puff pastry. I used the San Marzano tomatoes because in my opinion they are the best but any other tomato variation should be fine. This cake is simple and easy to prepare, it is also very tasty as the tomato goes perfectly with the flavor of the cheese and basil.
