Mmmmmm….tastes like summer. When tomatoes are in season, this is a perfect side-dish for a picnic or party. Go ahead and make two.
- 4 tomatoes, peeled and sliced (see video link below)
- 10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped green onion
- 1 (9-inch) prebaked deep dish pie shell (must be deep dish)
- 1 cup grated mozzarella
- 1 cup grated cheddar
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the peeled tomatoes in a colander in the sink in 1 layer. Sprinkle with salt and allow to drain for 10 minutes.
Layer the tomato slices, basil, and onion in pie shell. Season with salt and pepper. Combine the grated cheeses and mayonnaise together. Spread mixture on top of the tomatoes and bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
To serve, cut into slices and serve warm.
