Tomato-Zucchini Tart FTW!

The Tomato-Zucchini Tart from the Points System E-Mealz Recipe/Meal Plan was a-freakin'-mazing.

This time I took photos of the process just to show you how yummy it looks as you prepare it! I made a few slight alterations to the original recipe (spinach for basil b/c Wal-Mart was OUT of fresh basil??)

I try not to share the E-Mealz recipes too often.. but I know many of my friends who have signed up after sneak previews! If you want to try E-Mealz (read my post about it here) just click the little link on the right side of the page. It'll change your life (only slightly exaggerating here, folks!)

Tomato-Zucchini Tart

GV Pie Crust (the unfold and bake kind) 
1 medium zucchini 
(1 T olive oil) 
1 large tomato 
3 slices FF turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled 
1/2 c fresh spinach, chopped
1/3 c FF Parmesan cheese 
(1/3 c light mayo, 1/2 t salt, 1/4 t pepper)

Bake pie crust 9 min @ 450 until golden brown. Let cool.

Sauté zucchini in olive oil until tender

Arrange the zucchini in the bottom of the pie crust. 

Layer fresh tomato slices on top of the zucchini slices.

Combine remaining ingredients and spread evenly on top of the tomatoes.

Bake 15-20 minutes @ 425 or until heated thoroughly. Divides into six portions. 

This is most definitely a repeat! I froze 1/2 for a later date and saved some for lunch tomorrow. What a filling and delicious meal. We served it with green beans with 1/2 slice turkey bacon and 1 small slice of a fresh mini-loaf of pumpernickel bread.

The best part?? 

7 points TOTAL for dinner.
Veggie Tart= 5 Points
Green beans w/turkey bacon= 1 Point
Pumpernickel Bread= 1 Point

Second best part?The meal in total cost less than $7.00! That includes the tart, green beans, and bread which will feed two for dinner and two lunches! 

Amazing? Yes.
