Tomato Pie

YUM!  I had some tomato pie once from a local restaurant called Molly’s and it was delicious and I have wondered since how to make it so imagine my delight in finding this recipe on Pinterest.  It comes from a blog called “Tastes Better From Scratch” and it was pretty good, not quite the same as Molly’s but close. 

5 Roma tomatoes, peeled and sliced (I didn’t bother peeling mine)

10 fresh basil leaves, chopped

1/2 cup chopped green onion

1 (9″) prebaked deep dish pie shell

1 cup grated Mozzarella

1 cup grated Cheddar

3/4 cup mayonnaise (I used 1/4 cup light mayo and 1/2 cup Greek yogurt)

2 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese

salt and pepper

1  Preheat oven to 350.

2  Place tomatoes in colander in sink in 1 layer.  (I don’t have a colander big enough for this so I just piled them all in there and it worked fine.)  Sprinkle with salt and allow to drain for 10 minutes then use a paper towel to pat dry the tomatoes, getting as much of the juice out as you can so that your pie isn’t soggy.

3  Layer tomatoes, basil then onion in pie shell.  Season with salt and pepper.  Combine Mozzarella and Cheddar with mayo.  Spread mixture on top of ingredients in shell and sprinkle with Parmesan.  Bake 30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Here’s another picture of a slice of the pie, it was still pretty hot when I cut it so it didn’t hold together all that well but you can see how yummy it looks!
