Introduction

My mother-in-law used to dish up this tasteful pie, and every time she changed the veg inside of it...: i prefer peas but you can use whatever veg you like! One of the good things of this tasty light main course is that you can have it both cold or warm. Usually I have a green salad with it. Hope you like it!

Method

Peas Pie is a community recipe submitted by claudia and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Put a pot on a low hob and put into it 6 spoons of olive oil, half of the butter, finely sliced onion and let them cook for 3 minutes. Add the peas, the glass of water, the soup cube, a pinch of salt, stir and leave on the fire - better if covered with a lid - until the peas are cooked (approximately 20 minutes). If they result to be dried up too much, add more water while they're cooking. Turn off the hob and let the peas cool. Pre-heat the oven to 180°.
  • While the peas get cool, take a bowl and pour in the ricotta, the crumbled ham, 4 spoons of bread crumb, 2 eggs, the 3 slices of crumbled sandwich bread, the peas, the parmesan and stir. If the mixture turns out dry, add the gravy of peas (or a spoon of oil) - on the contrary, if it's too wet, add more bread crumb.
  • With a part of the remained butter, line a tin (I use the plumcake one) and pour inside of it some more bread crumb.
  • Pour the mixture in the tin and level it with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle some bread crumbs over the mix and the rest of the butter, diced.
  • Put in the oven for 45 - 50 minutes. Once ready, wait for the pie to cool a bit before turning it upside down on a serving plate.
