Gluten Free Ricotta Pie Recipe

There are certain dishes that I could eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I consider them staples to my recipe collection, much like really great jeans are staples to my wardrobe. A great pair of jeans can be dressed up or down, take you to a party or a ball game, and be the thing you pull on when you want to impress or when you have nothing else to wear.

This Gluten Free Ricotta Pie recipe is one of those recipes; it can be dressed up or down, served at a party or a ballgame … well, you get the idea.

Basically a crust-less quiche, you can change this recipe up by adding different veggies, bits of ham, bacon, chicken, or any other meat – it’s a great way to use up little bits of leftovers in a way no one will suspect as being leftovers!

Serve this ricotta pie hot, warm, at room temp or even cold. Seriously, you can pretty much eat it any time of day, any way you like.

Recipe notes: I always use cage free pastured eggs (Nature’s Yoke) and organic cheeses in such recipes. I used canned artichoke hearts (not the marinated kind) but frozen will do also, just thaw them out. And I used jarred roasted red peppers, they’re easy and for this recipe I didn’t think the effort to roast my own was worth it. If you feel differently, by all means go for it. Just place the whole peppers under a broiler or over a flame and cook, turning frequently, until the skin is all black and blistered. Then place the peppers in a bowl, cover with a plate or plastic wrap and let cool for 10 minutes or so. When the peppers are cool enough to handle, rub the skin off.

Well, I had a pound of ricotta cheese that had to be used, so I searched the internet and found you! So glad I did. This dish is absolutely scrumptious! I followed your recipe, except that I used the whole pound of ricotta, and only two ounces of Parmesan in the pie. I did sprinkle another ounce or so on top during the last minutes of baking. I had some leftover ham, and chopped that up, too. I think my husband and I could have finished the whole pie, but we saved some for breakfast. Thanks for a delicious meal. Now I want to try your French bread.
