Tomato Pie June 14, 2009

At least, that’s what I call it.  I can’t remember the real name, but I know it was from Southern Living magazine.  I think.  My mother-in-law made it a summer or two ago and I loved it.  I kind of forgot about it, but I’ve really been craving it lately.  We’re going to a cookout tonight, so it seemed like the perfect thing to bring along.  I tried to find it on the website but I couldn’t… maybe because I am way off on the name.  Anyway, I finally found it scribbled on a piece of paper.  Here’s the recipe.  It is so tasty, fresh, and healthy too. 

Tomato Pie

 1 frozen pie crust

1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced

2 teaspoons olive oil

3 medium plum tomatoes, sliced

1/2 cup fresh basil

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

1/3 cup light mayonnaise

1/2 teaspoon pepper


Saute the zucchini in the olive oil until tender.  Drain.  Poke holes in the bottom of the pie crust with a fork.  Place the cooked zucchini on the bottom, place the sliced tomatoes on top.  Mix together the rest of the ingredients and drop by teaspoonfuls on top of the tomatoes.  Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes.


One of the meals I am going to make this week is a variation of this that is more like a quiche, including eggs and ham along with the tomatoes and cheese.  I’ll post that after I make it!
