Zucchini and Sun-Dried Tomato Tart

Adapted from Radically Simple

It’s no big secret why this vegetarian tart is so delicious. Just take a look at the ingredient list and it’s clear – summer vegetables and herbs atop a bed of cheese and all-butter puff pastry. What’s not to love? This tart goes nicely with a salad or a chilled soup.

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 6 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, shredded (not Buffalo, too moist)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup minced scallions, white and light green parts
  • 1 cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1/2 cup julienned fresh basil leaves
  • 1 zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Sprinkle a little flour on a work surface, then roll out the puff pastry to fit a 9 x 13 baking pan. Coat the baking pan with a little cooking spray, then carefully place the pastry sheet along the bottom of the pan. Press the pastry gently into the bottom of the pan.
  • Top the pastry crust with mozzarella cheese, 6 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, scallions, sun-dried tomatoes and basil. Place the zucchini slices along the top in an even pattern. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with the half-and-half. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, then pour the mixture over the tart. Top with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake in the middle rack of the oven for 35 minutes, or until the center is just set. Remove from the oven and serve hot or at room temperature.
