I came across some fantastic summer tomatoes and wanted nothing more than to enjoy them all summer. They had the strongest sweetest flavor I have found in tomatoes in a long time and they lent themselves to this Roasted Tomato Tart flawlessly. And the parmesan crust and a layer of Boursin cheese, a match made in heaven!
Assembling the Tart
Summers freshest tomatoes are the base for this delicious Roasted Tomato Tart. Find the ripest and freshest ones you can get your hands on.
I slice and season the tomatoes before they go in the tart shell so that they can release their excess juices before being baked. I use some greek seasoning, salt, pepper, olive oil, and basil and let them hang out while I rest the Parmesan Pie Crust dough.
Then par-bake the tart shell and coat the bottom of it with Boursin Cheese. This gives extra flavor to the tart as well as insulating it a little bit and keeping the juice from the tomatoes from making the crust soggy.
Then lift the tomatoes from the juice and place them in the tart shell.
Bake the tart off until the tomatoes begin to caramelize and the tart shell is fully crisped.
Let the tart cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Place it on a platter and slice into 5-6 large slices and top with a few leaves of fresh basil. Believe me, you want a big slice!
Make it a meal
This recipe pairs really well with a nice side salad or bowl of soup to make the perfect light lunch. I also pair a nice big slice, maybe cutting only in 4 pieces, and serve it with a grilled chicken breast for a beautiful summer dinner. It goes fantastically with a nice grill protein, even a nice steak would be great with it.
The Best ingredients!
If you need the perfect tart pan for this, grab THIS ONE, it is just the right size for dinner and the removable bottom is my preference. You also want to invest in good olive oil for a recipe like this, it provides so much flavor and THIS is my current favorite. And if you need a good Greek Seasoning, I keep THIS ONE stocked at all times in my spice cabinet!
Roasted Tomato Tart
- 1 recipe Parmesan Pie Crust
- 6-8 Roma Tomatoes wedged
- 1 T Olive Oil
- 1 t Greek Seasoning
- Kosher Salt
- Black Pepper
- 5 Basil Leaves sliced
- 1/2 Boursin Cheese Wheel Garlic and Herb
- Follow the directions fo the pie crust and par-bake for 15 minutes.
- While your crust is chilling and par-baking marinate the tomatoes.
- To marinate the tomatoes, combine the tomato wedges, olive oil, greek seasoning, salt, pepper, and basil in a bowl and let them hang out on the counter while you prepare the crust.
- When the crust is finished par-baking, spread the Boursin cheese in the bottom of the crust and top with the tomatoes. Lift the tomatoes out of the bowl leaving the juices that have run off at the bottom. You do not want to add the juices to the crust or it will become too soggy.
- Bake the filled tart at 350˚f for 40-45 minutes, until the crust is well set and the tomatoes have roasted.
- Let cool, 10-15 minutes in the pan, slice, and enjoy.
