Sardines Puff Pastry Tart

Quick and simple lunch for my two kiddos. Effortlessly for me too which I need not spend much time in the hot kitchen! I simply love frozen puff pastry! Its so versatile which you can make it into a light meal by spreading over your favourite toppings and then pop it into the oven and bake till golden brown. I've made a simple tomato sauce for the base instead of using canned ones which are usually high in sodium. Homemade fast food can be healthy and of course delicious too!
