Perfect for a huge crop of tomatoes and basil. I used egg beaters instead of eggs and thus reduced the fat, calories and cholesterol and it came out tasty and was easy to put together. Thanks for posting.

This was a amazing. I added some finely chopped onion and I am just realizing now that I totally forgot to put the yogart in (which was the main reason I was excited to use this recipe in the first place, sigh). Oh well, guess I will just have to make it again so I can try it with the yogurt. This was my first kiche/tart I have made and it turned out so satisfying. Thank you Barb!

This recipe is excellent. I made it as written the first time, but now, I substitute any variety of ingredients for whatever type of tart I make. The ratio of eggs and yogurt is the only thing that stays the same. Thanks for posting such a winner.
