This is a sweet rice based dessert that is baked in the oven. The pineapple provides an additional twist on the rice custard base. 1/2 cup of uncooked rice should get you one cup of cooked rice.
Wow. I really liked this one. I made 'Italian Rice Pie 2' first which I really enjoyed but it was a much simpler recipe than this. (still great) The ingredients in this pie all blend together wonderfully for a tasty, not overly sweet yet filling dessert. I suggest a splash or two of heavy cream over this pie. It's great cold as well as slightly warmed. - 27 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Excellent dish. Pineapple could be replaced with your choice of fruit, dates, raisins, etc. - 27 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Absolutely sensational!!! This is truly addicting. Had to find use for alot of leftover ricotta and so glad I found this. Talk about comfort food. My whole family loved it. Cooked it a bit longer than an hour, no big deal. Gona hold on to this one. - 02 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
