With a delicate crust and lots of lovely tomatoes on top, this dish is a special one to serve to guests. I make it often when fresh garden tomatoes are in season. It freezes well unbaked, so I can keep one on hand to pop in the oven for a quick dinner.—Neta Cohen, Bedford, Virginia

"SOOO good, and not difficult to make. I put it in the freezer as soon as I assembled it, and popped it into the oven the next day. It was beautiful and perfect. I'm making it again tonight, but crumbling bacon on top of it. Mmmmm...YUM!"
