Method

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 190°C. Place all the vegetables for the pie in a large bowl and toss with the oil, garlic and caraway seeds. Arrange on a large roasting tray and roast for 20-25 minutes until veges are just tender. Remove and leave to cool.

    Meanwhile line a large shallow roasting tray with baking paper, then line the base and sides with pastry, trimming to fit neatly. (You will have to join the sheets together and may need to roll it a little thinner).Refrigerate until ready to fill.
  • 3
    Whisk the eggs and milk or cream together and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the parmesan.

    Arrange the veges (it's fine if they're still warm, just not hot) evenly over the pastry base, pour over the egg mixture and dot with ricotta. Brush pastry edges with the milk. Bake for 40-50 minutes at 190°C or until the centre is set and the pastry golden.
  • 5
    Meanwhile make tomato sauce by simmering all the ingredients in a medium pan for 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper and extra chilli if desired.
