Recipe Entry: Tomato Pie

This recipe entry for the giveaway is from Amanda and looks delicious. Seems like something perfect to serve on these nice, sunny days we have been having. I have included her notes with the recipe.

"Easy and southern as they come, this luncheon pie is surprisingly delicious, healthy and vegetarian. Just don't point that out to Daniel..."

3-4 tomatoes, peeled and sliced (I didn't peel mine)
10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 c shredded mozzarella
1 c shredded cheddar
1/2 c chopped green onion
1 c mayonaisse (I only used a 1/2 c of light mayo)
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1 9" deep dish pie shell

Bake pie shell according to directions. While shell is baking, place sliced tomatoes on several paper towels to absorb excess juice. Turn them over and salt and pepper them.

Layer tomato, basil and green onion in pie shell. Combine cheeses and mayo and spread this over tomato mixture. Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Notes: This makes one pie. I went ahead and made two while I was making. It keeps well in the refrigerator and is great served with a salad and rolls.

Thanks Amanda for sharing!!
