Torta Rustica is a cheese pie that contains sauteed onions. The idea is almost like a quiche, but very different. Many years ago, I saw the recipe for Torta Rustica on the weekend Today Show. I love cheese, and I was drawn to the complex combination of flavors. Complex as it is, this is a snap to make. It couldn’t be easier. I have served it for brunch a number of times. It’s very heavy meal, so best served in small portions. To do that, serve it with a salad of mixed baby greens with a zippy vinaigrette and something sweet with apples. That’s what I do, and guests always love it.
