Loved this mushroom tart with all the wonderful flavors going on. The goat cheese was wonderful with the lemon and thyme and the addition of the mushrooms was perfect. Served this delightful tart with a prime rib roast and a salad. It made a wonderful dinner last night. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, December, 2013.
This was excellent. The combionation of goat cheese, lemon and thyme remembers me the flavor of Greece. I had all ingredients on hand and it was a game to prepare this for me new style tart.
Thanks a lot for posting this yummy recipe!
