Course: Ordinary Recipes Made Gourmet

This recipe is from SkinnyMs

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups part-skim ricotta

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup parmesan grated

  • 1/2 tsp. salt plus more for sprinkling (I like Kosher salt)

  • 1/4 tsp. pepper plus more for sprinkling (I like lemon pepper)

  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg grated

  • 1 round puff pastry dough store-bought (9-inch)

  • 2 zucchini medium, thinly sliced lengthwise

  • 3 carrots peeled, thinly sliced lengthwise

  • 1 eggplant thinly sliced lengthwise

  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the ricotta, eggs, half of the Parmesan, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  • Place the puff pastry on a greased 9-inch baking pan then prick it with a fork.
  • Pour the ricotta mixture on the dough.
  • Make sure that the vegetable slices are of similar height before starting to put them in the pie.
  • Starting from the outer edge, line the pie with the vegetables, one kind per line. Alternate with the other vegetables until you reach the central part.
  • Once the pie is filled up, drizzle or brush the vegetables with extra virgin olive oil then sprinkle with salt, pepper and the remaining Parmesan.
  • Bake in the oven for 1 hour in the middle rack. If you see that the pie is already brown before 1 hour, take it out of the oven, cover it with an aluminum foil and finish cooking it until the hour ends.
