Herbed Leek Tart
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Makes2 tarts (8 servings each)
- 3 cups thinly sliced leeks (about 4 medium)
- 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper

- 1-1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence
- 1 package (15 ounces) refrigerated pie pastry

- In a large skillet, saute the leeks, red pepper and garlic in oil until tender. Remove from the heat; cool for 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese, mustard and herbs; set aside.

Fold edges of pastry over filling, leaving center uncovered. Brush folded pastry with milk; sprinkle with nuts if desired.
