500g butternut pumpkin, peeled and cut into 1cm slices
1 small red onion, peeled and cut into 10 wedges
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large sheet short-crust pastry
3/4cup tomato chutney or salsa
5 basil leaves, shredded

2. Meanwhile, press pastry into the base and sides of the tin and fill with baking beans, bake in oven 15 min. Remove weights and paper, bake a further 15 min until golden.
3. Remove base from oven and spread with chutney. In a large bowl, toss together the pumpkin, onion, basil leaves and capsicum and place over tart base. Bake for a further 5 min. Serve warm tart with a spinach salad if desired.
