Last Call For Summer Tomatoes

September 7, 2010

If you are inundated with tomatoes right now, I feel your joy! In just a few short weeks, the taste of summer tomatoes will be just a pleasant memory.

We have had such a fantastic growing season this year with all the warm weather, and I have been trying to freeze and dry as many tomatoes as I can.

One of my very favorite things to make with an excess supply of the red beauties is this delicious tomato tart.

I start with a sheet of already prepared puff pastry that I roll out to fit a tart shell.

Next I brush the pastry with about 1 tablespoon of a grainy mustard.

Then I sprinkle about 1 1/2 cups of grated Asiago cheese (use whatever cheese you like).

Then I layer of tomato slices on top of the cheese and I make a minced topping of 1 large clove of garlic and some parsley and basil leaves. Add a little salt to taste.

You will love this fabulous and so easy to make tart that I am sure it will become a favorite of yours as well. Until next summer, savor the flavor!
