Roasted Tomato Tart

Hello, lunch! Nice to see you!







Sometimes I just have to get out there and seek the sunshine! So today, I roasted tiny plum cherry tomatoes and made the most wonderful tomato tart for our lunch! It's a recipe that I worked on last summer when tomatoes were at bumper crop proportions on my counters and kitchen window sills. When I saw a little box of greenhouse tomatoes in the market that actually looked deep red and perfect, I flashed on this tart and sunny summer days and sunshine in the back yard and warm temperatures!

Turns out today is a beautiful sunny day, so after we knosh the tart and a bit of salad, we're off for a walk in the sunshine! Hope you're able to get out in the fresh air and sun today, too!

This tart has layers of caramelized onions that have been sweetened with balsamic vinegar, roasted tomatoes, broken slices of American cheese (or Provolone), mozzarella, and some grated Parmesan, ribbons of basil (or spinach), plenty of black pepper, and drizzled olive oil. The crust is a simple flour crust that has basil and oregano added to give it a nice green flavour.  It's really delicious!

Make it and see what you think!
