I had an abundance of Roma tomatoes, and this is my favorite flavor combo for eating tomatoes, so today I tried it out in pie form.

    Slice tomatoes fairly thick. You can roast these various ways, in a skillet, in the oven, on a grill. I used my electric griddle. Drizzle olive oil on cooking surface, place tomato slices on and cook on med high heat for about 5 min. Flip and turn off heat. Set aside until ready to use.

    Grate cheese, I use Asadero cheese, which is similar to muenster. Chop about 1 c of fresh cilantro.

    Scatter a small amount of grated cheese on bottom of pie crust. Place tomatoes around, then spoon small amount of Thai sauce on each tomato, then sprinkle on some chopped cilantro. Repeat process with one or two more layers, it will depend on how many tomatoes you use, how large around they are and how many you use per layer. For final layer, leave off the cilantro and add a little more cheese on top.
