Recipe Box, Zucchini, Corn & Asiago Tart

Do you ever take a favorite recipe and tweak it a little?  The main reason I love to cook is because it is another world of creative expression and it’s fun to invent and reinvent favorite dishes

Even though this recipe is very similar to my Zucchini Garlic Gruyere Galette,  it deserves a turn in the spotlight because it is, quite frankly, scrumptious!

This version has fresh corn and Asiago cheese

It’s so simple and so perfect for making right now with the abundance of summer corn and endless garden zucchini

You can omit the caramelized sweet onions and roasted garlic for a short cut

But think twice…

Caramelized onions make everything better, and the roasted garlic adds a subtle under tone of fantastic flavor

Load it up with cooked fresh corn

Top the corn with sliced or grated Asiago cheese* for a hidden layer of flavor

Using a flavorful cheese like Asiago, Manchego, Gruyere, or Smoked Gouda is what makes this dish stand out 🌟

  • Print

2 medium zucchini, cut into slices

1 sweet onion, sliced

1 head roasted garlic*

2-3 ears fresh corn, cooked

1 pie crust refrigerated dough round

4 oz Asiago cheese, sliced or grated

1-2 oz shaved Parmesan cheese for topping

1 T butter

1 T olive oil

salt and pepper

Place zucchini slices on paper towels and salt.  Let sit 10 minutes, turn and repeat.  Meanwhile saute onion in butter and olive oil over medium low heat until caramelized, about 20 minutes.

Lay dough in deep 8″ square baking dish or deep round pie dish, stretching and shaping to fit if necessary.  Spread roasted garlic evenly over bottom of tart.  Top with onions, and then corn.   Season with pepper.  There will be plenty of salt in the dish from the zucchini.  Top corn with an even layer of cheese.

Pat zucchini dry.  Don’t worry about the salt, it will season the dish.  Layer  zucchini on top of corn.  Top with Parmesan.  Fold edges of tart in over filling.  Bake at 350 until set and golden, about 45 minutes.  Cut into squares or wedges to serve 4-6

*cut top of garlic head off exposing the cloves.  Place on a piece of foil and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Wrap up into a packet and bake at 400 for 1 hour.  Can be done ahead and refrigerated.

    That looks so good, and asiago is one of my favorite cheeses. It’s so full of layers (literally!) of flavors, easy to make, and pretty. Perfect for a dinner party. I’ll have to remember this one.
