Expert Tips

Tomato paste is made of tomatoes that have been cooked for several hours, strained and reduced to a deep red, richly flavored concentrate.

All this three-cheese pie needs for a delicious meal are some steamed fresh vegetables such as yellow beans or sliced summer squash. Treat yourself to a “dusty road” sundae later in the evening by sprinkling malted milk powder over vanilla ice cream.

Trade two for one: Use 1 teaspoon of dried Italian seasoning instead of the oregano and basil leaves.

An easy way to get tomato paste out of its can: Open the top and bottom of the can. Hold the can over the mixing bowl and push tomato paste through bottom end with a spoon. Use a rubber spatula to scrape any remaining tomato paste from the sides of the can.

Keep a few cans of canned chicken in your pantry so you can make this recipe anytime.

Remember this recipe the next time you make a large chicken dinner. It’s a great way to use up those few extra pieces.

Savory Impossibly Easy Pies can be covered and refrigerated up to 24 hours before baking. You may need to bake a bit longer than the recipe directs since you’ll be starting with a cold pie. Watch carefully for doneness.
