This recipe comes from the novel, Welcome Back to Pie Town by Lynne Hinton (Morrow, 2013).
3 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
4 or 5 medium ripe tomatoes, peeled and sliced
4 green onions, chopped
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tbl. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. black pepper
9-inch deep dish pie shell (baked at 350 degrees F. for 10 to 12 minutes and cooled)
Sprinkle half a cup of the cheese on the bottom of the baked and cooled pie shell.Top with salted tomato slices, allowing them to overlap in a circular pattern. Mix the mayonnaise, basil, oregano, pepper, green onions, and one cup of the cheese and spread this mixture over the tomatoes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and bake at 350 degrees F. for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve cool.
