Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Grab extra tomatoes at the market and add this recipe to your menu! The combination of herbs, along with the sauteed onions and tomatoes make one fabulous meal. Serve it with a side salad and you have an easy dinner! I really enjoyed the basil in this pie... it packed the perfect flavor punch.
