Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Tart (courtesy of Karen Huftalin (IL) and the Tastefully Simple Cookbook)
1 unbaked pie crust (we use the refrigerated pie crusts)
1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
9 medium Roma tomatoes, quartered
2 Tbsp. Tastefully Simple Dried Tomato Garlic Pesto (prepared with oil and water)
1/2 cup mayonaise
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/8 tsp. white pepper (I have often omitted this and it tastes great without it too)
Bake pie crust as directed on package, for one crust pie shell. While hot, sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Arrange tomatoes on top of melted cheese. Sprinkle Dried Tomato and Garlic Pesto over tomatoes. In medium bowl, mix 1 cup mozzarella cheese, mayonaise, Parmesan cheese and pepper. Spread over tomatoes, covering as much as possible. Bake at 375 for additional 35-40 minutes. Serve hot or cold. Delicious!!!!
