  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. In a large, shallow baking pan, combine the zucchini slices, sweet pepper strips, onion wedges, and mushroom slices. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Toss the vegetables to coat them evenly.

  2. Bake the vegetable mixture, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes or until tender, stirring once halfway through the baking time.

  3. While the vegetables are roasting, cook the artichoke hearts according to the package directions, then drain them. If any artichokes are large, halve them, and stir them into the roasted vegetable mixture. Set the mixture aside.

  4. Reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat two baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray. Unfold the pie crusts according to the package directions and place each pie crust on a prepared baking sheet.

  5. In a large bowl, beat the semisoft cheese with garlic and herb and the softened cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spread half of the cheese mixture over the center of each pie crust, leaving a 2-inch border.

  6. Evenly divide the roasted vegetable and artichoke mixture between the two pie crusts.

  7. Fold the edges of the pie crusts partially over the filling, pleating them as necessary. Brush the edges with milk and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  8. Bake the tarts in the 400-degree oven for about 20 minutes or until golden. Let them stand on the baking sheets on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

  9. Finally, cut the tarts into wedges and serve warm. The Roasted Vegetable Tart is best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, where the flavors and textures shine.
