This is a traditional savoury pie. Shortcrust pastry encases a quiche-like filling of egg, ricotta cheese, ham and salami. Serve for lunch, dinner or general snacking. It's also the perfect picnic food.
almost the same as our family recipe only we cut up the coldcuts into small cubes - 30 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
There are many variations of this recipe, however due to the omission of mozzarella cheese, this is the one I consider to be authentic. Because this pie is eaten after it cools to room temp or cold, it's also an unnecessary addition and a waste of calories (save it for a plate of juicy tomatoes instead). That being said, if your Nonna made it with mozzarella cheese, by all means add it for the nostalgia (8 ounces ought to be plenty). The fresh parsley is a must and adds a bit of brightness to the dish. Oh, and if you make just one, you'll quickly learn why you should have made two. - 28 Feb 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
