Roasted Tomato and Ricotta Tart

About the tart - it is DELICIOUS. It has the flavors of lasagna, but uses bread crumbs for the starch instead of noodles. If you don't have a springform pan, I suppose you could use a pie tin, and lift out a piece like a pie, but the springform pan is THE kitchen tool of choice for this recipe.
Also, the recipe calls for 2 cups of coarse FRESH breadcrumbs.If you can breath you can make them. Simply put some cut bread into a processor and whirl. I mean...come on! EASY.
