Here is another seasonal favorite, and a great way to use up some of those tomatoes.
One pie crust – I cheat and use the Pillsbury crust in the red box you can find in the dairy case.
5 cloves of garlic, sliced
6 fresh basil leaves, large, whole
3/4 cup mayo
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsps. butter
1/2 sleeve of Ritz crackers
Peel and slice tomatoes, remove seeds and lay on paper towels to soak out excess juice for half an hour. While tomatoes are drying, bake pie crust according to directions on box. Remove from oven and let cool. Layer tomatoes, garlic slices and basil into the pie crust. Mix mayo, parmesan cheese, pepper and garlic powder together. Spread on top of tomatoes, garlic and basil. Melt butter, crush Ritz crackers, mix and sprinkle on top. Bake at 425 for 25 minutes.
