torta alle erbe

greens pie

Scores of recipes from all over the country, made with chard or spinach, maybe onions and pancetta or other meat for flavour. Some are almost a quiche, with plenty of egg. There's a good recipe here.

In Sicily, torta alle erbe is also a soft cheese, made with a crust of herbs.
