Tomato Pie!

A non-wedding related post!! ha!

I made this for dinner last night and it was delish! Very light and summery - the perfect thing for all the excess tomatoes this time of year. My parents gave us about 30 tomatoes from their garden last week and we have been pretty much eating them for every meal. I know Paula Deen has a recipe for Tomato Pie as well, but I found this one on southernfood.com and it's ALOT healthier than Paula's! 

Tomato Pie

Ingredients:
1 (9" size) frozen deep dish pie shell, prepared
5 large tomatoes, peeled and thickly sliced (I didn't peel my tomatoes cause I'm lazy and it came out fine)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon dried basil (I used fresh chopped basil) 
1 Clove fresh minced garlic 
1/3 cup mayonnaise (I used light mayo and it worked great)
1/3 cup grated Parmesan Cheese 


Layer tomatoes in pie crust, sprinkling each layer with salt, pepper and basil. Combine mayonnaise, garlic and cheese and spread over tomatoes.  Bake at 350F for 35 minutes or until browned, let stand 5 minutes.

Super Easy and Super Yummy!
PS - one small wedding update - I got our marriage license today! We are officially ready to get married! YAY!
