It's been cold and wet outdoors this weekend, so tonight I'm going to indulge myself by making a gorgeous savory pastry that takes inspiration from French country cooking, the Mediterranean, and the fruits of the sea.
I don't plan on toiling over a crust from scratch. Instead, I'll parbake some store-bought pie dough, then fill the tart with a sumptuous filling of shrimp, feta, and roasted red peppers. The result is a sophisticated update on a rustic classic. For the recipe, read more. Ingredients 1 sheet store-bought refrigerated pie dough, at room temperature Directions Serves 6.
