Mille grazie!  Che buona idea!
That sounds delicious! The C&SH wouldn't like it, because she's not fond of eggs, but I could quarter the recipe for myself. Usually, I just throw the left over pasta in a skillet with some oil and spices, throw in some peas and heat well. I learned it from the elderly Sicilian mother of a friend of mine.

How right you are. Vegetables don't taste the way they once did--factory farming changed that.  :(

In a saucepan heat butter until melted; stir in spices and warm very gently until fragrant. Remove immediately from heat to avoid burning.

Catherine, does the bean salad improve as it marinates, or should this be eaten right away? Thanks.

I would say up to a week in the fridge, it improves as it marinates. It can definitely be eaten right away though. This is something I like to make as a side dish and eat off of throughout the week. It's always nice to have leftovers that improve with time :)

Classic Tomato Pie

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/3 cup cold butter, diced
1 T. finely chopped fresh parsley
3/4 cup or more buttermilk
4 to 6 ripe paste tomatoes, cut into thick rounds
2 t. fresh basil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 cup mayonnaise

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Cut in cold diced butter until the flour resembles coarse crumbles. Then stir in the parsley and buttermilk and mix until the dough comes together. Cover and let rest at room temperature two hours.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Press the biscuit dough into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Then lay the tomato slices on the biscuit dough. Mix together cheese and mayonnaise and spread over the tomato slices.

Place the pie in the preheated oven on lowest rack and bake for about 35 minutes, or until the biscuit dough crust is golden brown. If the top of the pie has not browned to your liking, move it to the upper rack and continue baking as desired. Let the pie cool for about 15-20 minutes before slicing. Best served warm to room temperature.
