Tomato Inspiration

This week, the recipe that caught Gerry's eye on the way home from the farm was for a tomato-basil tart. Of course, following the recipe isn't Gerry's style, so here's where he went with it!

Instead of making pasty, he used a Pillsbury pie shell we've had in the freezer since apple season. He cooked up some peppers and onions and added them to a bowl of beaten eggs. All this went in the dish, and then the tomato/mozzarella/basil came into play.

As I hovered over him, I bugged him about the mess in the middle. "Why didn't you make another nice circle inside the other one?" I don't know how he puts up with me!

And the finished product. Surely nothing like the original recipe!
