It sounds deceptively simple, but this is a fantastic recipe! It's so tasty, I could easily eat an entire pie by myself. I usually make two at a time because it gets gobbled up so fast.

Sandwiching lightly salted tomatoes between paper towels for about ten minutes will help the pie not be too runny.

I was at my cousins when she was making this pie for dinner (I helped by cutting up the tomatoes) and as I was watching her put it together kept thinking it needed some bacon which she did try. It was really great though I thought it was a bit wet (which is why I only gave it 4 stars) so when I made the recipe, I roasted my tomatoes a bit first and it made all the difference. I also discovered that my pie plates are 12 inch deep dish pie and this recipe would not let me adjust it so I made my own roasted-tomato-pie-434080, which would not have happened without jean1 getting me started.
