1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

7. Place the tart pan in the fridge to chill while you prepare the ratatouille filling.

8. In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium heat.

9. Add the diced eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, and red bell pepper to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

10. Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the skillet and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.

11. Season the vegetable mixture with dried oregano, basil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

12. Let the ratatouille filling cook for an additional 5 minutes until all the vegetables are tender.

13. Remove the tart crust from the fridge and spread the ratatouille filling evenly over the crust.

14. Drizzle the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil over the top of the filling.

15. Bake the tart in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

16. Let the tart cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy your delicious ratatouille tart with flaky cheddar & thyme pastry!
