- For the filling
- 400 grams Ricotta cheese
- 2 Eggs
- 100 milliliters Whipping cream
- 100 grams grated Cheese
- 60-80g mixed Fresh herbs (finely chopped)
- freshly ground pepper (and salt)
For the dough: Mix the flour, salt, butter, and egg into a smooth dough. Wrap in plastic and chill for 30 minutes.
For the filling: Mix the ricotta with the eggs, whipped cream, grated cheese, and herbs. Season with salt and pepper.
Roll the dough between parchment paper and line a greased pie pan, about 26 cm (approximately 10 inches) in diameter. Prick several times with a fork. Spread the cheese-herb mix on the dough.
