6OzCremini Mushroomscleaned, sliced, and cut in half (just to create more bite sized pieces)
1/2Bell PepperLarge, Sliced, and cut in half
1tub Beef Stock or Vegetable StockKnorr Homestyle
1sheetPuff PastryThawed (I use Pepperidge Farm)
1small Handful Parsleychopped
In a medium saute pan, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat until perfectly melted.
Quickly add the onion and garlic and turn the heat down to medium-low.
Let the two cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and peppers, and cook stirring occasionally for another 5 min.
Add the last tablespoon of butter and the homestyle stock.
Gently fold the mixture until the butter and stock are completely melted and everything is well coated.
Cook on medium-low for 15 minutes or until everything is incredibly tender and juicy.
Heat the oven to 400.
Lightly flour the counter and lay out the puff pastry. Using a glass, biscuit cutter, etc of your desired size, cut out circles and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. (You don't want these suckers to stick, so I do recommend the paper)
Use a paring knife (or butter if you need to), score the dough about 1/4 inch in. In other words, make a small circle inside of the large one so as to create and crust, or side on the tart.
Add a few little dashes in the center too.
Scoring it will allow the edges to rise, but not the middle to you have a cute, little tart.
Fill each center with a spoonful of your mixture and place the entire pan in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
The time is going to depend on the size of tart you make. Mine took about 14 minutes, your tart could vary.
Once the time is up, open the oven and pull the rack out, and add a shaving or two of the Gruyere cheese.
Place back in the oven for another 2-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the tart is golden.
Sprinkle with fresh, chopped Parsley and serve immediately!
*Remember that cleaning mushrooms should just be wiping them with a paper towel. No cleaning by rinsing with water!*
