If you love basil you will love this tart. If you want it lower cal omit the pie crust but the crust does give a nice finish when serving. I often add some garlic too Great luncheon dish

Sorry but the entire family did not enjoy this at all. I think it was the amount of basil - not a favourite with them and I like it in minimal quantity.

For those of you who are experiencing a glut of tomatoes, zucchini and basil in their gardens, this tart is absolutely delicious! I used super fresh veggies from my garden for those 3 ingredients and found this to be bursting with flavor. Bergy, one thing that confused me was that in step #4 I combined the mozzarella and parmesan, but then in step #7 you say to sprinkle on the parmesan cheese and finish baking. I caught that discrepancy before I began making this and so I divided the parmesan and put half with the mozzarella and half on top after baking 20 minutes. That stragedy worked and so I still give this 5 stars for a recipe that was so totally delicious. Thanks Bergy!
