Recipe: Goat Cheese, Pesto, Tomato Tart

This is a pretty simple recipe though it takes more time to come together then I thought it should. The result is absolutely spectacular though and worth the effort. I’d suggest using really good goat cheese and the freshest tomatoes you can find because there’s no hiding behind bad ingredients here.
