HEIRLOOM TOMATO TART RECIPE: http://learntocook.com/tart/heirloom-tomato-tart/


Filling Ingredients
2 cups ricotta
2 cups grated Parmesan
½ cup Asiago
½ cup, basil cut in a chiffonade
Salt & pepper to taste
1 lb heirloom tomatoes, thinly sliced
Basil leaves for garnish

1. Roll out dough about 10-11 inches in diameter. Lightly oil every nook and cranny of the tart pan with olive oil. Place dough over tart pan. Trim off excess dough. Using your fingers, lightly press dough into sides and bottom, making the sides thicker. Place in refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 400F. In a large bowl, mix together the ricotta, Parmesan, asiago, basil and salt and pepper until thoroughly combined. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover in plastic wrap and let chill in refrigerator.
3. Remove prepared tart pan from the refrigerator and line with tinfoil. Pour in pie weights or dried beans, place on cookie sheet and set in the oven. Bake for about 10 minutes, remove the tinfoil and pie weights and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove and let cool.
4. Once pie crust is cooled, add in the filling. Add the tomatoes on top, being as rustic as you’d like. Top pie with basil leaves and a sprinkle of sea salt and a couple of grinds of black pepper. Serve.
