Tomato & Cheese Tart

Why does summer go so fast and winter seems to linger foreveeeeer??? But I’m not complaining, I like fall (and even spring), get to see the gorgeous changing colors. I hope we can take some time and visit some scenic place with beautiful fall colors. Are you reading this Mr. H??
Tomato & Cheese Tart
Anyway coming to the recipe, I watched Ina Garten make it on FoodTv in the afternoon and I made it for our evening snack that same day. This is probably the first time ever that I made a recipe so quick after watching the show. The only change I made was the type of cheeses used, Ina used parmesan & feta; I used asiago & mozzarella.

Ingredients

Puff pastry sheet – thawed according to instructions
1, pkg
Onion – large, thinly sliced
1
Garlic
2-3 cloves
Thyme, fresh
1 tsp
Tomato – medium, cut into thick slices
1
Asiago cheese – grated
¼ cup
Mozzarella cheese – grated
2 tbsps
Salt & Pepper
to taste

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Heat 1tbsp oil in a skillet; add onions and garlic and sauté on medium flame until lightly caramelized.
  3. Add thyme, salt and pepper and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In the meantime, open the puff pastry on lighly floured surface and roll it into 11”x11” square (approximately). Using a 5” round plate (I used a small steel plate) as your reference, cut the pastry into 4 circles with a sharp knife. Place the circles on a parchment covered baking sheet; then score a ¼” border around each pastry circle, this will create the slightly raised edge to the tart once baked.
  5. Prick the pastry inside the scored line with a fork and sprinkle 1tbsp asiago cheese in the inner circle.
  6. Place ¼ of the onion mixture in the center (inner circle), sprinkle mozzarella cheese and place a slice of tomato in the center of each tart. Sprinkle the tomato with salt and pepper. Finally using a peeler, make big shards of asiago cheese on top of the tomato.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Serve hot or warm.
