Italian Cheese Pie created by DbKnadler

This recipe can serve as a main dish or an appetizer cut into small pieces. For the meat and cheese, buy it in 1/4 inch slices and then dice it into smaller pieces. You can freeze any extra pies you make. This pie is delicious cold, but it's better warm.

directions

  • In a very large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except crusts.
  • Mix well, making sure that all ingredients are distributed through the ricotta mixture evenly.
  • Spoon the ingredients equally into the pie crusts.
  • For a more decorative look, apply strips of pie crust to the top of the pie in a basketweave pattern.
  • Bake at 350 degrees until the top of the pie is a dark golden brown and the center is set, approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes.
  • Allow pies to cool for about 45 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve warm or cold.

    I thought this recipe was very good. Yes, it was a bit salty, but not too salty for me. If you want to cut back on the salt decrease the romano cheese by half. It will still turn out delish. I thought this was a great alternative to a quiche... less eggy, more cheesy, and more delicious in my opinion. I would try this recipe again for sure

    its a bit to salty for my taste, but still good especially when paired with a salad.

    Wow, this was good. I took this to a family dinner, where the theme was "Italian Food". We have a lot of dieters in our family, but it was still well received. I will definately make this again.
