The original of this recipe made enough onion and olive tart to feed an army. This recipe is just right for a small gathering of family and very good friends. smaller slices are wonderful for appetizers, and large slices make a good main course for lunch with a salad of crisp greens. Note: You may want to chose a square or rectangular tart pan for a different presentation.unknown source
