The whole idea of the tomato pie is great, but the mozzerlla cheese ruined it. I'm going turn the recipe into a frittata the next time I make it. Will follow the recipe & use beatten eggs, half & half & Italian shredded cheese instead of the mozzerlla.

An Awesome dish!! I would recommend doubling the cheese, dividing it proportionally, adding a little Cheyenne (I did this as i mixed all of the herbs and spices together before sprinkling on the layers). Also, I would suggest 1/2-1/3 cup flour sprinkled over the tomatoes. I found that this helped the pie from becoming "soupy." An Excellent Dish!!! I have made Four times. and will Keep making For Sure!!!!
