We used basil, dill, thyme, and parsley, but just about any combination of herbs that pair well with tomatoes--such as oregano and tarragon--would work.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400º. Place tomatoes in a single layer on paper towels; sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. salt. Let stand 30 minutes. Pat dry with paper towels.

Step 2

Meanwhile, roll 1 pastry sheet into a 14-inch square on a lightly floured surface; place on an ungreased baking sheet. Cut 4 (12- x 1-inch) strips from remaining pastry sheet, and place strips along outer edges of pastry square, forming a border. Reserve remaining pastry for another use.

Step 3

Bake at 400º for 14 minutes or until browned.

Step 4

Sprinkle pastry with mozzarella cheese and next 3 ingredients. Top with tomatoes in a single layer. Sprinkle tomatoes with herbs and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt; drizzle with oil.

Step 5

Bake at 400º for 14 to 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.

Made this tonight and we loved it! I did 1 extra medium tomato and left out the little tomatoes. I thought the feta was a delicious touch and draining the tomatoes worked for us! We did not have too much liquid. Will make again!

This is so good!!! I've made several versions of tomato tarts and this is the best. I don't care for feta cheese so I used 2 ounces of goat cheese instead. Will make again for sure!!

The flavor of this recipe was great, but I think the amounts of some of the ingredients were off. I think the recipe would be better with about half of the cheese. Even though I let the tomatoes sit on paper towels for thirty minutes and dried them, the tart still had way too much liquid.
