Simple Pizza Rustica: aka Pizzagaine Italian Easter Pie


Happy Easter to all of you celebrating this Sunday. It was Spring Break this week for my kids, so we did lots of running around and had a foodie overnight in New York City that I will write about once the celebrating ends and the kids get back to school.

I wanted to share some of my family's favorite Easter foods. Pizza Rustica I have been making since I was a little kid. Egg drop soup was always a staple at my grandmother's house and one of my aunt's always should up with a homemade rice pie.

On Good Friday we tend to have a very simple vegetarian dish, most typically Good Friday Pasta.
