This torte is as beautiful as it is delicious - and simple to make, besides. It smells divine and irresistable when it comes out of the oven! I used a pint of multi colured tomatoes which only added to the visual and taste appeal. I finished it with a fresh grinding of tri-colour pepper. Thanks so much, Jubes, for posting this, and CG, for putting this in your Best of 2010 Book, I'm so glad I got to try it. I'm putting this one in my Best of 2011 Book, too.
We enjoyed a delicious meal-this for our main dish accompanied by Greek Farmers Green Salad and Yellow Melon Muscatel (Melon Salad) . Easy to prepare and would work well for a brunch, too. Fresh local eggs and fresh basil from the garden. The next opportunity to make this I'll take advantage of the heirloom toms available locally. Baked in a standard pie pan greased with olive oil. Reviewing the recipe earlier than usual today because I took a "sneak peak" (bite) of the torte before dinner time. Thanks for posting! Reviewed for ZWT #6.
Delicious! I used 15 oz. Ricotta because that's how it's packaged here. 4 oz of Mediterranean style feta because that's what I had and did the rest according to the recipe. It does smell amazing while baking! It is hard to resist cutting into it fresh from the oven, but we did. I served it chilled along with a tossed salad and Grilled Balsamic Asparagus by gaylaj. Everyone loved it!
