Crustless Tomato Ricotta Pie



This was described as a cross between a frittata and a quiche.  I like both.  Despite that, I found this to be eggy and I would cut down to two eggs, next time.  The tomatoes gave life to the dish and it is a wonderful way to use tomatoes when you have a summer crop.  I know, it is winter, but both hubby and I brought home tomatoes and there is a limit to how many I can use.

  4. Looks good, but if it was eggy I'd have to cut back too. I have a weird thing about eggs! I do love tomatoes though!
