This high stepping gourmet dish is great for special company or just something ‘throw together’ to impress your friends and family.


  • 1 partially-baked tart crust, (recipe link below)
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup slice shallots
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons ramp pesto, (see link here)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Melt the butter in a small saute pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and saute until softened, stirring continuously, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Spread the shallots over the bottom of the partially-baked tart crust, set aside.  Put the goat cheese in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pulse 3 to 4 times. Add the cream, egg, salt and pepper and run until smooth.

Remove the blade from the bowl and stir in the pesto with a wooden spoon.  Pour the mixture over the shallots in the prepared tart shell.

Place the pan on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until the filling is firm.  Allow to cool slightly and top with dollops of pesto.
