In a bowl, mix together the eggs, grated Parmigiano, chopped basil leaves, salt and pepper to your taste. Add the vegetables and mix well with a fork.


Line a 20-22 cm tart pan with puff pastry (or patè brisèe), sprinkle the breadcrumbs on the bottom.


Put the diced ham (or pancetta) and mozzarella (or Provola).


Pour the eggs and vegetables mixure on top.

Notes

Perfect for this time of the year, with all the beautiful vegetables in season. And if you are using storebought puff pastry of patè brisée, very quick to prepare as well.

Omit ham/pancetta and you'll have equally nice ovo/lacto vegetarian dish.
