A simple summer tart filled with sliced zucchini, feta and parmesan cheese, toasted pine nuts and grape tomatoes. This cheesy zucchini tart is a crowd pleaser may it be at your next picnic, potluck or just family dinner.
It’s time to take a break. Break from all the sugar and chocolate. A little break from all the sweets. A little break long enough to enjoy a slice of this cheesy zucchini tart. It’s savory day here on Roxana’s Home Baking. And not just any savory dish, but one that you’ll end up making, just like me, all summer long while the zucchini are freshly picked from the garden.
I have been making this cheesy zucchini tart since two summers ago but have never thought of sharing it on the blog until few weeks ago when hubby asked if I’m going to take some photos or he can just cut himself a slice.
Now, this summer was CRAZY for me. We’ve been traveling since middle may. Florida, Pennsylvania, North and South Carolina I hardly had time to cook anything when we were back home. Just to unpack and get ready for the next one.
But all trips stopped at the middle of July and we slowly got back into a routine but not for long.
One day I had the unpleasant surprise to come home to a broken stove. It happened over night. 3 out of 4 burners were out. At first I didn’t panic. It’s summer, we live mostly with fresh fruit and easy tossed salads but after few days I was starting to feel it. I needed more than just one working burner. Even the handy man could not put a smile on my face. The estimated repair price was higher than a sparkly new stove top.
Without a functioning store, using my trusty ovens to make dinner was a must.
My family loves zucchini and have been trying to use them in different ways and dishes, but there’s something about this tart that my family adores. It may be the layers of cheese in between the slices of zucchini. It may be the toasted pine nuts which bring a nuttiness and a little crunch to the tart. It may be the pretty halved grape tomatoes beautifully arranged along the pan.
Whatever it is I know this cheesy zucchini tart is a winner. And not just with my family at dinner time, but served cold the next day at a picnic with friends, at potlucks and any gatherings.
