Bell Pepper, Onion and Tomato Tart

September 5, 2010

Call me a pushover for any tart (I am not a man), sweet or savory and this one is both.  The sweet bell peppers and onions with the olives and Feta cheese create quite a flavor for all invited.  I wish someone was in my kitchen and made any kind of tart everyday.  Oh, that was my mother.  How did she do that with 5 crazy children?  She would have loved this combination as she loved anything with peppers and onions.  I probably did not cut the peppers or onions properly, (rebellion, reason I have poor knife skills) she is missed so much.
