tortiera

casserole... or pie pan

Southern Italian tortiere are baked dishes that will almost always include potatoes, along with alici, sardines or similar, or artichoke hearts. The oven dish they are baked in is also a tortiera.

In Puglia, a tortiera is a casserole of potatoes, rice, courgette and peppers, generally topped with bread crumbs.
