The inspiration for this tart came from the bounty of colorful veggies in my garden and the ingredients on hand in my fridge. The cool thing about this recipe is you make the filling and top it with whatever veggies you have on hand. —Cheryl Warth

In This Recipe
  1. Place a cooling rack over a rimmed cookie sheet. Slice all veggies into 1/4 inch thick rounds. Place on cooling rack and sprinkle with salt. Set aside for 10 minutes. This will release some of the water in the veggies. Pat veggies dry with a paper towel.
  2. Preheat oven to 375.
  3. In a bowl mix together; Ricotta, parmessan, eggs, salt & pepper, minched garlic and basil. Spread mixture in the bottom of the pie shell.
  4. Top the filling with the veggies. Starting with the larger slices and closest to the rim of the pie plate alternate and slightly overlap the veggies going around in a circle. End with the smaller slices in the center.
  5. In a small bowl mix the breadcrumbs, parmessan, parsely and olive oil. Sprinkle over the top of the veggies.
  6. Place pie plate on a cookie sheet. Place in oven and bake 45 to 50 minutes, until veggies are soft and slightly browned.
  7. Enjoy!!
