    I made this for the second time over the weekend. This time I used 2/3 Roma tomatoes and the rest were regular. My thinking was that since the Roma's have less water in them, soggy crust wouldn't be an issue. Wrong. This tart was waterier than the last. I even sliced the tomatoes an hour ahead and let them drain in a collander. I also cut back the amount of olive oil added at the end to less than 1 tablespoon. Any thoughts as to how to make this less watery?

      I've made this tart so many times and always gets rave reviews. The thing is with the tomatoes I've learned that you have to slice them and lay them on paper towels for probably 3 or 4 hours. The day I'm going to make the tart/s, I do this at breakfast time - and then turn them a few times onto different paper towels. It really is worth it. You will get rave reviews. Promise!!

    This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. To those of you having problems with the crust becoming soggy -- blind bake it first! I blind bake it till it's almost done, then spread the garlic and add the filling. I also add chopped basil and crumbled goat cheese. Incredible!!!

    This is a great recipe, but I'm pretty sure that when it says "reduce temperature to 400 degrees," it probably means 300 degrees. Or you've got one really well done tart!

    I served 2 of these along with Salade Nicoise to 10 luncheon guests. We devoured every morsel. I made with herbs in crust, only addition was a bit of freshly grated parmesan before topping with shredded basil. Boyfriend was unhappy to hear about lack of leftovers and I promised to make him one very soon. I took credit for perfect tarts but directed everyone to Matha's page for recipe.

    Good stuff can't wait till our garden tomatoes are ripe. I added fresh herbs to the crust it was like a real baker created it. Used some smoked cheddar, want to try smoked mozzarella next time.

    I made this tart last night and it was fantastic. I placed the tomato slices on paper towel with a paper towel over the top to soak up the excess liquid from the tomatoes. I also added some torn basil between the slices. I will definitely make this again.

    When I watched the show that included this recipe, I was sure that they said that spreading the garlic on the crust defends it against the wetness. But I haven't tried the recipe myself so I have no personal experience to relate.

    Read "In Defense of Food" by Michael Pollan. The crust could benefit from a whole wheat flour, but the rest of this recipe is REAL food, therefore healthy.
