Here’s a recap of one of two recipes I made for this past Easter. Why only two you ask? Because I have a mother and aunt who insist on making everything and then tell me to make nothing (go ahead women, say something, cause I know you’re reading this, lol)! But that’s never going to happen! Of course, even if I didn’t make the two things, we still would have had too much food, lol…But that’s every holiday for us….So I opted to make an appetizer and dessert. The yummy dessert was Espresso Brownies from a Giada DeLaurentis recipe I promise to post later this week. For the appetizer, I went with a Martha Stewart recipe I made a few years ago for Italian Savory Pie.
I actually really really really like this dish. However, I think the only ones who ate it were myself, my husband and my mother. My cousin, L, did taste it and remarked it needed salt. I used the 1/4 tsp. of salt as instructed in the recipe, and the ingredients were actually pretty salty (ricotta, mozzarella, prosciutto, Parmesan), so this might have been a matter of taste.
It’s very much like a very cheesy quiche and I would serve this at a brunch or dinner. I’ve found it does not taste as good hot out of the oven as opposed to either room temperature or slightly warm.
I also used Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Dough as I’m entirely too lazy to make my own. It’s a tasty, cheesy little pie that I’ll keep in my recipe repertoire. If you click on the above link to the recipe there is also a short video of the pie being made.
