Quick and easy to make Spring Onion Tart

This Spring Onion Tart is simple to make for lunch or dinner time meal.  We could see this going well with a glass of white and some salad. We got all excited as we took the tart out the oven as it had puffed up and looked astounding.  As is our luck, it soon deflated!
