When I think of a cheesy pie, I imagine something dense and, well, super cheesy. This pie defies my preconceptions!
The main cheese is mild ricotta, with some Swiss cheese and Parmesan for extra oomph. With flaky phyllo dough and plenty of eggs in the mix, the pie turns out to be light and delicate.
Made with canned artichokes, this pie is easy to make: layers of crisp and buttery phyllo, artichokes, a burst of bright lemon zest, and fresh parsley. It’s a vision to behold. Serve it with a big salad or steamed asparagus and some crusty bread.
WHAT’S THE BEST CHEESE FOR CHEESE PIE?
Ricotta is what really lights up this pie, but it is a little bland by itself. Whole milk ricotta is the creamiest and best to use in the recipe. If you want to exchange the Swiss cheese for another one, any buttery, nutty cheese is a good choice, but keep the Parmesan!
