Ricotta and Tomato Tart
- Total Time
Phyllo dough dries out quickly so you need to work fast. A tip: Have all the ingredients prepared before you unwrap the dough.
cooking spray3 spray(s)
fat-free ricotta cheese1 cup(s)
regular liquid egg substitute½ cup(s)
grated Parmesan cheese¼ cup(s)
chives¼ cup(s), fresh, chopped
phyllo dough4 sheet(s)
plum tomato(es)3 medium, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick
basil1 Tbsp, fresh, chopped
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9-inch glass pie plate with nonstick cooking spray
- Stir together ricotta, egg substitute and 2 tablespoons each of Parmesan and chives; set aside.
- Lay 2 sheets of dough across pie plate. Press down and coat with cooking spray. Lay remaining dough across pie plate in opposite direction of first dough layer; press down.
- Spoon ricotta filling over dough and layer with half of tomato slices. Sprinkle with remaining chives and basil; layer with remaining tomato slices. Top with remaining Parmesan.
- Trim off excess dough, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold up border edges to partially enclose filling (do not pull dough tightly — it should form a loose, lacy crust). Coat with cooking spray. Bake until Parmesan is golden and filling is firm, about 20 minutes.
- Remove from oven and allow to stand for 5 minutes before slicing into 6 pieces.
