I made this recipe for Pick-a-Chef 2005. Fresh basil and tomatoes from the garden mingled perfectly with the cheesy alfredo-like topping of this tart. Divinely-scented while baking, the tart also tasted quite heavenly. I did not use a tart pan but rolled the pastry into a flat 13" circle, topped it, baked on a pizza stone, then carefully cut it into about 24 squares. The squares reheated well after advance preparation. This tart makes an attractive presentation. I'll make it next time I want to impress party guests!
