Zuchinni and Tomato Tart

Tart- Tomato Zucchini
Serves: 6-8 servings
TIP: If you are watching calories, you can get by with a ¼ cup mayo and ¼ cup of cheese. I think this recipe would be great with sauteed sweet onions, or sauteed red pepper, or crisp bacon on it also.
  • ½ (15-oz) package of refrigerated pie crust, or make your own recipe.
  • 1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced about a ½ pound

  • ½ cup fresh basil chopped, or 1 tsp dried basil
  • ⅓ cup mayo or light mayo
  • ⅓ cup (about 1.5- oz) fresh grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • ½ tsp freshly ground pepper
  1. Fit pie crust into a 9" tart shell, trim excess and prick bottom.
  2. Bake at 450 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes until lightly browned.
  3. Saute' zucchini in hot oil in a large skillet for a few minutes or until tender.
  4. Arrange zucchini on top of pie crust.
  5. Slice and arrange tomatoes on top.
