Yam and Goat Cheese Tart

3 T olive oil
1/4 cup shallots
1 1/4 lb yams, peeled, thinly sliced
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup goat cheese, crumbled

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring oil to heat in a medium saute pan over medium- high heat. Add shallots and saute until soft, about 2-3 minutes. Spray tart pan with non-stick cooking spray and place on foil-line tray. Place yams in overlapping layers, starting at the edges and spiraling inwards to make one layer. Sprinkle with shallots, Parmesan, salt and pepper. Repeat process to create three layers. Cover top layer with cheese and lightly salt. Bake in oven until top is golden brown and the tart is easily pierced with a fork, about 40-45 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, remove and cut into wedges to serve.
