    Laurawombat Garcia's Note:

    This is a rich Italian layered Pie of meats, cheeses and eggs. I think I got it from a site about Sicilian food.

      This was outstanding, and I even messed it up. I purchased a small container of ricotta, and only had two eggs in the house when I made it...so I went with that and added 1/4 lb of goat cheese I had in the refrigerator as well. I served it with warmed spaghetti sauce and it was fabulous!
