Here is a cheesy, creamy and chunky treat of melt-in-the-mouth homemade tarts baked with a luscious spinach-based filling.

Perfect recipe for tarts. They just melt in the mouth. Have tried so many recipes but nothing matches the perfection of this recipe. It was superhit starter for my party last night. Guests just loved it.
