The pros: I was pleasantly surprised that Trader Joe's Harvest Gorgonzola Tarte was not as terrible as I was anticipating. The combination sounded unappealing, but since I've eaten every other tart in the line I had to have this as well. I enjoyed this almost as much as I did Trader Joe’s Tarte d’Alsace with Ham, Onions, & Gruyere. That is still my favorite, but this is a solid runner up worth a look. For $3.49 it's one of the less expensive tarts.
The cons: You'll need to like veggies, but all of the veggies tasted sautéed and were tender. The bottom of mine was a bit soggy after cooking.
The verdict: I'd buy this again. It was fresh, seasonal and tasty. It's a great appetizer that can be shared or a lunch/dinner.

What came out of the toaster oven in 10 minutes:
I have to be honest, I was not looking forward to eating this tart. Thus, this is why I saved this for last. I don't like any form of blue cheese, but I can honestly say I could barely taste any gorgonzola as it blended easily into the rest of the cheeses. The veggies were surprisingly delicious. This would be a great appetizer to share (or have as a dinner and not share). It's definitely worth a look in the freezer aisle at Trader Joe's.
