Our new favorite side, or even complete meal, is the savory tart. It started last month when I needed a healthy side and came up with the spinach and leek tart. Since then we’ve been on a savory tart roll and the one recipe we can’t get enough of and has become the main course at our dinner table is this ricotta and tomato tart. The filling is light and creamy, the crust addicting, and the nearly dried tomatoes on top add just the right amount of flavor to give it an extra boost of deliciousness.
