Reviews for Rustic Roasted Vegetable Tart
"New summer favorite!"
"One of my all-time favorites! Very easy and delicious plus you can use any combination of veggies you want."
"I have made this a number of times when summer veggies are in full swing. If you use juicy tomatoes, it helps to dump out the excess juice halfway through the roasting process, otherwise it'll take forever to evaporate. I use a little more cheese than this recipe calls for."
"This was very good. It looked great and tasted wonderful. Not difficult to make but looks impressive. Be sure to roast lots of veggies - I did not use all that it said, as I feared it would be too much - but they really cooked down and I barely had enough. I would use more veggies next time. The combination of vegetables was very tasty and I Would not change a thing."
