I have always loved broiled tomatoes. I don't know where my wife got this recipe, but it is fabulous, ridiculously simple and quick to boot. We serve it as a vegetable side dish.

1 baked and cooled pie shell

4-5 medium tomatoes, sliced. They're best if they are a little firm, but not the salad cardboard they sell up north in the winter - we use the ones in the store on the vine.

7-8 green onions

5-6 medium leaves fresh basis, coarsely chopped

1 cup mayonaise

1 cup shredded cheddar

1 cup shreded mozarello

salt and pepper

slice the tomatoes about 1/4 inch slices, and place in the pie shell. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Slice the green onions ( we go into the green a bit) and put over the tomatoes. Add the chopped basil to the pie. Mix the mayo, and two cheeses, and spread over the pie. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until top is golden. Enjoy. The tomatoes are still a bit firm, but warm, and taste like broiled tomatoes to me. My wife first made this on New Year's eve, and we've had it several times since, and I am still not tired of it.
