heirloom tomato tart


i just love tomato and goat cheese together.. pete not so much.. he swears he hates goat cheese.. I found great looking heirloom tomatoes and decided to make this heirloom tomato tart.. pete tried it and ate 90% of it and said i didn't use goat cheese, i said yes i did... he wouldn't believe me.. *eyeroll*


i used a pre made pie crust, mainly because i had baked like 4 loaves of crispy bread already that day and i was not in the mood to tackle pie crust.. next time i will do it.. I promise :)
