HERB & GOAT CHEESE TOMATO TART
Makes 6 servings 

Ingredients:

• 1/2 pound goat cheese room temperature
• 1 pound butter puff pastry (package found in the freezer section of your grocer)
• butter for greasing your pan
• 1/3 cup heavy cream
• 2 tsp. minced fresh herbs, oregano, thyme
• 4 to 5 tomatoes sliced
• salt and pepper to taste
• arugula for garnish

MAKING THE HERB AND GOAT CHEESE TOMATO TART: Remove pastry from package and let thaw at room temperature, roughly around an hour. Unfold pastry and shape onto a 12 x 9 buttered pan. Preheat oven at 430 degrees. Line pastry with pie weights or dry uncooked beans to weigh down for prebake. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crust starts to look dry. Remove from oven and carefully remove weights, continue to bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.

In a small bowl, whip together with a spatula 1/2 pound goat cheese and 1/3 cup heavy cream until smooth. Stir in the minced herbs (we used fresh oregano and thyme from the garden, but basil and chives are another great option!). Gently spread the herbed goat cheese over the cooled baked tart.

Lay the tomato slices  on the tart so that they are slightly overlapping and in an even layer. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Garnish with arugula.
