Recipe Cupboard – Tasty Tomato Tart

Tasty Tomato Tart

This easy weeknight dinner is packed with lycopene and vitamin C to boost vision health and add to senior nutrition. It’s similar enough to pizza that even picky eaters will try it — but it’s a total showstopper with fresh, colorful ingredients.


1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

1 onion, thinly sliced

1 teaspoon olive oil

2-3 large tomatoes (multiple colors make a beautiful tart, but red works just as well)

1 cup of your favorite cheese (such as blue cheese, mozzarella, feta, or Parmesan)

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, or chopped fresh herbs like basil and oregano


Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil.

Stretch out the puff pastry on the lined baking sheet. With a fork, poke small holes along the bottom.

Add onions and olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. Sauté, stirring frequently, until soft — about 5 minutes.

Sprinkle cooked onions over the pastry dough, then top with tomato slices so they don’t overlap. Sprinkle with cheese and half of your seasoning or herbs. Season with salt (or salt replacement, if you’re avoiding sodium) and pepper to your tastes.

Bake for 25 minutes, until the crust is golden. Sprinkle with the remaining herbs, cut into squares.
