Zucchini and Tomatoes



If this tart doesn't shout all the goodness of summer, nothing does.


This tart is baked with a delicious cream egg mixture and filled with the taste of summer vegetables.

Cheeses



If you love cheese, mozzarella that is used in this tart is a mild taste.


You can substitute cheddar, provolone, or any easy melting cheese you like.


I really love to sprinkle a little Romano cheese on top of the tomatoes and then drizzle them with olive oil before baking.


If you are watching carbs, then substitute crushed pork rinds for the bread crumbs.

A Light Meal



During the hotter months, this is the perfect light meal solution.


Add a little house salad to this and you have a whole meal.


Of Course you can add cooked meats to your tart if you like.


I prefer it all vegetarian.

Meat Lovers


If your family prefer meats, I recommend only using cooked meats.


Cooked bacon, Italian sausages cut up and ham are the best choices.


One of my favorite parts of summer is when zucchini is in abundance.


I never have enough recipes to use it all up so I freeze it.


Maybe you remember my tips on Zucchini post? You can find it here.

  2. I loove this Zucchini tart. It certainly gave me an idea on how to use my Zucchini. I am not a fan of cheese, so I will revise it and skip the cheese on mine and I will add ground chicken .
