Ricotta Pie (Firinda Omlet)
3 eggs, beaten
1 tsp corn starch
1 tomato, cut into slices
½ cup ricotta cheese
½ cup mozzarella or cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup milk
3 tbsp oil
½ tsp salt
½ tsp dried basil
In a bowl beat the eggs. Add ricotta cheese and shredded mozzarella/cheddar cheese, oil, salt and half of the milk. With the other half of the milk mix the starch in a mug, stir well in order to solve the starch completely in the milk.
Then add the starch-milk mixture in the bowl. Place the mixture in a 8 inches round or a rectangular Pyrex. Place the tomato slices evenly on the surface and sprinkle the basil on top.
Preheat the oven to 395-400F (200 C) and bake until the surface color is red, for about 12-15 minutes.
Serve warm. Ricotta pie is good to go at breakfasts.
