Yield :

  • One 9-inch pie/ 8 servings | Serving Size: 1 slice |

Ingredients :

  • 9-inch round baking pan
  • 1-1/2 cups part-skim ricotta
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt + more for sprinkling
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper + more for sprinkling
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 (9-inch) store bought round puff pastry dough
  • 2 medium zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 3 carrots, peeled, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 medium eggplant, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Preparation :

  • 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.
