Italian Meat Pie

READY IN: 40mins
Top Review by Lightly Toasted

This was good. But as I was making it, DD came in with 2 friends....and they were all hungry, so I had to figure a way to make it stretch. I mixed ricotta cheese with an egg, and added 1/2 cup of prepackaged pesto. I Put the parm cheese down for the first layer, then the ricotta mixture, then followed the rest of your instructions. It was a hit!
