Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: I love this recipe because it brings back wonderful memories of my grandmother's Italian kitchen. She always made this with the left over pie crust dough after she made holiday pies. Her recipe was much simpler, just potatoes and onions, but over the years I've added my own own twists.

This recipe is very easy to make. I did make a few changes because it look like it may be a little dry. I added half cup of mexician white cheese, 1 egg, and another TBL more sundried tomato. We really enjoyed this dish and will certainly make it again soon, keeping the changes.Thanks for a excellent recipe.
