Caramelized Onion Tart

Some days I have no desire to cook, but then other days that's all I want to do. Like yesterday, I made a batch of granola, Oreo cheesecake bars, and a caramelized onion tart. The tart was super quick and easy. It would be a great appetizer or served at a brunch.
Caramelized Onion Tart
Start by preheating your over to 350 and thawing out 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry. In a medium pan/skillet heat 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Thinly slice 2 medium sized yellow onions and add to the melted butter. Add 1 tsp. of sugar, 1/4 tsp. of salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 3 tbsp. of white wine, and 1/2 tsp. of dried Thyme. Cook onion mixture about 20-30 minutes or until the onions turn a nice brown color. Set aside.
In a small bowl whisk together 1/2 cup of Ricotta cheese and 1 egg yolk.
Lay the puff pastry on a greased baking sheet and fold in each edge about 1 inch. Evenly spread the Ricotta cheese mixture over the pastry. Layer the caramelized onions over the Ricotta cheese. Top with 1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan Cheese. Bake for 25-35 minutes (just make sure the pastry is baked through and golden in color). Slice and serve warm!
