Since I posted this recipe (way back when), and it's one of my fave quick & easy sides (& KE has mentioned it quite a few
) - I'm thinking about making a few changes for a new Spring/Summer dish accompaniment.
I will do everything pretty much the same except, omit the mayo, oregano & green onions. I'll call it an almost Caprese pie; i.e. sliced tomatoes, drained & seeds removed - sprinkled with salt & pepper, thinly sliced mozzarella, and again fresh (torn) basil between the layers... keep on layering ingredients until the pie crust is almost full. An optional addition -- add blanched, cooked fresh asparagus over the top in a circular pattern with a sprinkle of fresh grated Parmesan over the top. Bake until everything is just heated & cheese is melted.
Going back to the old fave recipes & giving 'em a new twist, makes everything fresh & new again -- a makeover, if you will.
