A wonderful and very French summer tart, even though all of that French mustard sounds suspicious, it changes taste when it is cooked. It serves a lot of people as a snack, or as a first course

- 6 sliced tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon herbes de provence

- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Grease tart pan or pie pan and put in crust.
- Spread bottom of crust with mustard, sprinkle with half the cheese, cover with tomato slices.
- Sprinkle on the rest of the cheese.
- Sprinkle with herbs and drizzle on olive oil.
- Bake at 375° for about 30 minutes.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.
Excellent! This dish gets one of my rare "To Die For" ratings ! DH ate half the pie himself. I made the recipe as directed using a pre-rolled (Pillsbury) pie crust, Dijon mustard and the Herbes De Provence sent to me from the chef as part of the "Salt and Pepper Shaker Swap". Kasha lives in Provence (France) and this wonderful dish makes me wish I did also. This recipe will be the star of my "book of special tricks". I served the pie with Broccoli with Lemon-Garlic Crumbs #71074. Thanks Kasha for this very special recipe.
Yummy! We really enjoyed the mustardy pie crust. As other have noted, the crust did end up soggy even though we squeezed as much juice/seeds from the tomatoes as we could before slicing them. Next time I will try pre-baking the crust. However, it may just be the nature of the dish. Either way, we enjoyed it. It was a great way to use up six tomatoes as our garden explodes.
I enjoyed this and will make it again. I agree that the quality of tomatoes is very important!
