April is National Tomato month in Florida, and this bright red veggie…I mean fruit, is now ripe for the pickin’! I enjoy eating fruits and veggies that are in season because they are tastier, their nutritional value is higher and they’re usually more affordable when in season.
I used to put my tomatoes in the refrigerator, but I recently learned that keeping them in a pretty bowl on the counter is better. The cold temperature of the refrigerator can kill the flavor of tomatoes.
Today I’m sharing a recipe for an easy and colorful tart made with delicious heirloom tomatoes, creamy ricotta and tangy blue cheese. This tart is the perfect side dish to add to any #SundaySupper spread during Spring, and it looks especially pretty on the table when dining al fresco with family and friends.
What I enjoy most about this tomato tart is that you can sub out the blue cheese for any of your favorite cheeses. Mozzarella or cheddar would pair nicely with ricotta.
Check out the recipe below and scroll down to see all of the delicious tomato recipes created by my fellow Sunday Supper friends. I’m sure you’ll find a few new favorites!
- 1 9 inch pie crust
- 1 cup of ricotta cheese
- 1 cup of blue cheese
- 1 large egg
- several heirloom tomatoes, sliced
- Preheat oven to directions according to your pie crust. Pre-bake shell for 8-10 minutes. Remove, prick the bottom with a fork and let cool.
- Meanwhile, slice your tomatoes.
- Mix the ricotta cheese with the egg.
- Fold in the blue cheese.
- Once shell has cooled for a little while, spoon in the cheese mixture.
- Top with sliced heirloom tomatoes.
- Bake for 25 minutes.
- Remove, let cool.
- Slice and enjoy!
