Ripe Tomato Pie Recipe

Ingredients:
1 unbaked 9 inch pastry shell
5 to 7 ripe medium-size tomatoes
¼ tsp pepper
½ cup mayo
1 -2 cups grated mozzarella
1-5 cloves minced garlic
Milk
Basil
Dill
Salt

Directions:
Slice tomatoes and layer in a bowl, sprinkle a pinch of salt between layers and let sit for 2-3 hours to drain.

Mix ¼ tsp pepper, ½ cup mayo, 1 -2 cups grated mozzarella and 1-5 cloves minced garlic.

Brush pastry shell with milk, poke with a fork here and there and bake at 450 for 5 minutes. Remove pastry shell from oven, layer the tomato slices (but not the juice - discard or drink!) Spread mix on top of tomatoes and bake at 350 for 20-30 min – or until cheese is golden brown.

Let sit for a few minutes and serve warm with a green salad.

Fresh basil can be layered with the tomatoes or dill can be added to cheese mixture for additional flavor.
