It’s time to tomato up with this fabulous “tart.” Creamy, slightly sweet and nourishing at the same time. Layers of beauty baked into deliciousness.

This dish is a great dinner side, a perfect brunch addition, or a smart make-ahead meal for a quick breakfast or lunch option. It tastes great hot or cold. My 7-year-old usually gobbles down two slices!
