Veg Timpano | Vegetarian pot pie

Vegetarian pot pie filled with pasta and raw banana balls

Timpano in Italy refers to the pot in which this baked pasta dish is cooked with a dome of crust filled with different layers of fillings. It is a heavy bottomed pot in which the pie is baked and inverted after baking to form a dome shped Dish.

I used my regular spring-form pan.This is originally an authentic Italian pot pie filled with pasta, meat balls and sausages popular during any festival like Christmas or Easter. But this recipe is a vegetarian version of the same. The meatballs are replaced with raw banana balls. The  pie crust is originally prepared with eggs  and the texture should be like pasta dough,but this recipe makes an eggless oil pie crust flaky from scratch using Godrej sunflower oil. The oil is neutral to taste and makes a soft crispy flaky pie crust. Wish you all a very happy Easter. You should also see the recipe of  Torta Pasqualina Easter Pie,a fusion version
