Why Aged Goat Cheese?
Aged goat cheese has tons more flavor than its softer cousin. Look for it where the specialty cheeses are.
Pulse flour, table salt, and pepper in a food processor for the crust. Add butter and shortening; pulse until pea-sized. Add ice water; pulse to combine. Shape dough into a flat disk; chill at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375°.
Roll dough on a floured surface to ¼-inch thick; transfer to a 9-inch fluted tart pan. Press dough into pan and up sides; trim excess. Cover dough with foil; fill with dried beans.
Pat vegetables dry with paper towels. Sprinkle goat cheese and basil over bottom of crust.
Arrange vegetables starting around the edge of crust then moving to the center, overlapping and alternating vegetables as you go, until crust is filled and all the vegetables are used.
Drizzle tart with oil; season with salt and pepper. Bake tart until golden brown around the edge, about 30 minutes.
