Easy recipes using ricotta cheese

I had a bunch of ricotta leftover after making it from scratch. So I needed easy recipes using ricotta cheese. One recipe that sprung to mind was a tomato tart.

Heirloom cherry tomatoes

When I was at the store, there was these beautiful rainbow heirloom cherry tomatoes. I loved the different colors of yellow to a chocolate brown that these heirloom cherry tomatoes had. Normally I would use sliced Roma tomatoes for this tomato pie, but these multicolored cherry tomatoes looked so pretty, and I felt they would be better on a tomato tart.

 

Premade pie crust

I have been working so much that I need to take shortcuts when I cook and bake. So for this Italian tart I decided to make it so easy by using a premade pie crust. The only issue I have with the frozen premade pie crust is the one part of the crust always seems to be missing. I do not know what it is why that once piece on the top falls off.

None the less, that frozen pie crust really helps make this tomato tart taste so yummy. Plus I added fresh basil to this tomato tart as well. If you really want to add a special touch, drizzle a little balsamic glaze on this tomato tart and you will have a Caprese pie!
