For the vegetables:
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic minced
2 medium red tomatoes
½ green bell pepper
½ tablespoon oregano
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted
2 ounces garlic-and-herb goat cheese
2 ounces feta cheese
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
½ tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons lightly chopped basil leaves
crushed black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Slice the onion and mince the garlic. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium to low heat and add the onions and garlic. Saute for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until all the onions are translucent.
Turn the heat to low and let the onion and garlic cook.
Slice the tomatoes and green bell pepper. Add to the onions and garlic. Add the oregano, ½ teaspoons salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Continue to cook for another 5-10 minutes until the tomatoes and green pepper are cooked well. Remove from heat.
Defrost puff pastry according to package instructions. Unfold the sheet of puff pastry and place on a baking sheet. Take the tines of a fork and prick the pastry. Then lightly brush the pastry with ½ tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of the grated Parmesan cheese on top of the pastry sheet. On top of the cheese, place the vegetable mixture. Leave about a ½ inch margin between the edge of the pastry sheet and the vegetables.
Crumble the 4 ounces of goat cheese and feta cheese on top of the vegetables. Place the lightly chopped basil leaves on top, and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon black pepper.
Bake at 400 F for about 15-20 minutes until pastry turns light golden brown. Cut and serve hot or warm. Enjoy!
