  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Use the pastry to line a buttered quiche dish. Line with parchment paper and pour over some dried beans (or weights). Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, heat the oil in a frying pan and saute the garlic and onion for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes or until the juice is reduced by half. Season with salt.
  4. Spread the par-baked pastry case with mustard, then pour in the cooked tomatoes. Layer sliced tomatoes on top, then sprinkle with herbs de Provence and pepper. Bake in oven for 30 minutes.
