Rustic Summer Squash Tart
Adapted from Woman's Day
|1 Tbsp Vera Jane's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil|
|1 lb mixed summer squash (zucchini and yellow squash), cut in 1/4-inch rounds|
|2 shallots, thinly sliced|
|2 tsp fresh thyme or marjoram, chopped, plus sprigs for garnish|
|1 tsp garlic, chopped|
|Freshly ground black pepper|
|1 refrigerated pie crust|
|4 oz Roquefort or Gorgonzola cheese|
|1 roasted yellow or red pepper (freshly roasted or from a jar), cut in strips|
|1 large plum tomato, sliced and seeds removed|
|1 large egg, beaten|
Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add squash and shallots and cook, turning pieces as they start to color, 7 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove from heat; stir in thyme, garlic, and pepper to taste. Cool to room temperature.
Heat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; unroll or unfold pie crust on the parchment. With a rolling pin, roll crust to a 13-inch round. Crumble half the cheese over the crust to within 2 inches of the edge. Arrange squash mixture, pepper strips, and tomato slices on cheese; fold edges of the crust over filling and brush crust with egg.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes until pastry is golden. Slide tart, still on parchment, onto a wire rack. Crumble remaining cheese over top. Let cool before serving.
