Delicious recipes from family and friends. This is my attempt to get rid of Chicken Helper, Hamburger Helper and Tuna Helper and to start eating more locally grown foods!

I got this recipe from Traci at Meadows Family News and my family loves it! We have been using up the last of the garden tomatoes, so this recipe is perfect.
--Pie crust (I use my homemade crust, but frozen is okay) --1/2 cup Bread Crumbs --Garlic Powder, to taste --Salt & Pepper, to taste --Tomatoes, cut into pieces, enough to fill pie plate --1 to 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese --1/2 shredded Parmesan cheese --Fresh Basil
Preheat oven to 425. Cover edges of crust with foil and bake for 5 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes. Remove crust from oven and turn oven back to 375. Layer pie crust with breadcrumbs, garlic powder, salt, pepper, tomatoes, mozzarella and parmesan, and then repeat layers again. End with a layer of tomatoes. Bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh basil and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
