1 baked 9-inch pie shell

2 T. olive oil

1 C. chopped onions

1 garlic clove, chopped

2 T. packed chopped fresh basil

2 C. or 1 (15 oz.) container ricotta cheese

Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute until softened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and basil and cook 1 minute more. Set aside.

In large bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, roasted red peppers, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, salami and Jack cheese. Stir in reserved onion mixture. Spread cheese mixture evenly in baked pie shell.

In small bowl, mix bread crumbs and remaining 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. Sprinkle mixture over filling. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over top.

Bake at 375°F. about 25 minutes, until topping is lightly browned and filling is set. Cool thoroughly. Serve at room temperature.

Cooled pie can be covered and refrigerated overnight. Wrap individual slices in aluminum foil for traveling.
