Recipe by Luby Luby Luby

This is good as a side dish or an entree. If you are short on time you can use a pre made pie shell.

Top Review by CincinnatiKitchen

I thought this was a great side dish! I used a pre-made pie shell and 4 or 5 regular tomotoes instead of romas. I think next time I will use even more tomato slices, but it was very delicious anyway. My dad liked it which means a lot...he likes his food to be above and beyong the "average". It made a very good addition to my Mother's Day dinner for my mom and dad.
