Potato Savory Pie with Goat Ricotta Cheese

Torta rustica con patate

Savoury pies are one of my favourite dishes. I love savoury pies, every kind of savoury pie: with puff pastry, with parmesan savoury pastry, with pie crust, give me a slice and I’ll be happy.

One of my latest experiment was born of a union I’ve always loved: the potatoes and goat cheese contrast.
Usually, I use feta cheese, but this time I wanted to try with a tasty goat ricotta.

Finally, I added a bit of thyme and some sliced potatoes on the top of the pie just to give some more colour and crunchiness.

The result was really good, so I decided to share it with you. Of course, if you give me a little slice of this potato pie ; )

If you like savoury pies too, have a look at the Agretti and Ricotta Savoury Pie.
