Pie and Pasta. My two favorite foods. Well, in Italy they do make pasta pie. I never really thought of it as such, in Italian it’s called Pasticcio or Timballo depending on the region, and it’s not baked in pie tins so it has a different shape, but it’s pasta baked in a crust or in other words, pie. In Italy you’re most likely to find it in the Emilia-Romagna region during carnivale. It’s served at room temperature so it’s good for picnics or potlucks and just so happens that I’m going to a get-together tomorrow so I thought I’d surprise everybody with this unusual savory treat.

I don’t really have a recipe for the pie, in fact today is the first time I’ve ever made one. The crust is plain old American pie crust and the for the filling I used about 8 ounces of macaroni, a cup or so of my Solar Sugo al Pomodoro, some freshly grated Parmesan cheese, cherry sized pieces of mozzarella, frozen peas, and fresh basil. Once the pie was assembled I popped it in the Sun Oven for about an hour. We haven’t actually tasted it yet, I’ll let you know how it came out.
