This herbed goat cheese tart is an easy, flavorful vegetarian dish that uses thin phyllo sheets as the crust. The filling is made with soft, mild goat cheese and cottage cheese, and it is topped with sautéed shallots and cherry tomatoes before baking in the oven. The secret to this main dish is the fresh herbs. You can substitute dry, but nothing compares to using fresh herbs! Once you take the tart out of the oven, sprinkle chopped fresh herbs all over for a finished look and extra flavor.
