This is a delish and yummy tomato pie. Perfect for meatless Monday . Easy and best with fresh tomatoes.
What You need
1 Lb. Large ripe tomatoes (thinly sliced)
15 oz. ricotta cheese (you can use cottage but it is not as rich)
4 Large eggs
1/4 Cup Parmigiano-reggiano cheese
1/2 tsp Salt
1 / 4 tsp black pepper
1/4 Cup low fat milk
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 Cup fresh basil leaves (chopped and reserve some whole ones too)
1/2 Cup fresh mint leaves (chopped)See my tid bit below
Oven safe skillet ( 10 inch works well)
Before You Start : Preheat oven to 375 °
Lets Make It! In large bowl, whisk ricotta cheese, eggs, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper until blended. In a small bowl stir milk and cornstarch until smooth; whisk into cheese mixture. Stir in basil and mint. Pour the mixture into skillet and arrange tomatoes on top ( it is okay to overlap if you need to) Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned ( edges are firm and the center is puffed) scattered some whole basil leaves on top and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Katies Tid Bits** Try leaving out the mint and add a little chopped green onion instead
