Shiitake & Goat Cheese Rustic Tart Recipe

I almost always prefer sweet over savory but was inspired to try this tart featuring shiitake mushrooms and goat cheese. Refrigerated pie pastry allows for easy assembly.— Karen Watts, Cortlandt Manor, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
