Tomato Pie

The husband and I worked together to make another one of our favorites – tomato pie.  I’ve made it several times before (and blogged about it here), but this was easily my favorite.  The difference?  Asparagus.  It adds a nice crunch that was previously missing.

Spread pie crust in bottom of a deep dish pie pan.  Mix vegetables, spices, and sauces.  Add flour to thicken.  Pour into pie crust.  Mix cheese and mayo; spread evenly over top of vegetable mixture.  Bake in preheated oven at 375 for 45 minutes.
