This is a “My tomatoes are going bad and I need to use them ASAP or they’re going in the trash” recipe.
This recipe is fun to make in individual servings, as well, but making the whole pie is a bit quicker and I was definitely short on time for actual cooking on this night for dinner…
There are some make-ahead tricks that will help you save time and money for this dish!
Due to the craziness of my night when I shot this particular recipe, I unfortunately don’t have a picture of the pie cut into. I’ll admit, it’s not the most beautiful colored dish (topping each slice with a bit of chopped fresh parsley definitely boosts the color and flavor a bit but it’s not necessary).
I will tell you though… no matter what you think of the look of this pie, it is comforting, gratifying, and downright delectable…
Make it on a day you need some extra comfort… it will be delicious no matter when you decide to pop it in the oven!
Just to be sure I get the word out I thought I would make a special post just to announce the FREE coffee beans being given away this week! CONTEST ENDS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21st at MIDNIGHT! Winner will be announced on Saturday!
