  • This is become my go-to recipe for an appetizer, light main dish, or brunch dish. It is super easy to make and can be tweaked. For example, I like to add mushrooms, which I love. One time when I didn’t have zucchini, I subbed yellow squash. If I have some pesto on hand, I use it instead of just regular basil (fresh or dried).

    This lovely tart is good warm or at room temperature, and leftovers are even better than the first night!

    BUT WHERE IS THE RECIPE??? Good thing I printed it out when I first discovered it!
