Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray; set aside.
For pastry, in a food processor, combine flour, sunflower kernels, thyme, baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover and pulse until kernels are chopped. In a glass measuring cup, combine 1/4 cup oil and water. With the food processor running, slowly add oil mixture through the feed tube, processing just until mixture comes together (do not overprocess).
Transfer pastry to the prepared pie plate; press evenly onto bottom and sides. Prick bottom a few times with a fork. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, for filling, in the food processor, combine ricotta, eggs, basil, 2 tablespoons Parmesan and pepper. Cover and process until smooth. Set aside.
In a large roasting pan, combine mushrooms, the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Roast about 25 minutes or until mushroom liquid is nearly evaporated, stirring twice. Stir in spinach and Marsala. Roast about 10 minutes more or until Marsala is nearly evaporated, stirring once. Remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F.
To assemble tart, spread filling in the bottom of the baked pastry shell. Top with mushroom mixture and the remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or just until filling is set. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
