Torta Pasqualina

"Torta Pasqualina is also known as Italian Easter Pie. According to legend, the original Torta Pasqualina had a dough which consisted of 33 layers – one layer for each year of Jesus’ life. The modern version of this pie switches over to using puff pastry, and I’m ok with that. The flaky puff pastry provides a wonderful accent to the spinach + ricotta + egg filling. One of the things that really makes Torta Pasqualina unique is the addition of uncooked whole eggs into the spinach + ricotta filling. The eggs bake along with the pie, and once you slice into the pie, you have a really fun visual effect from the cooked eggs. (They almost look like hard-boiled eggs.) But here’s the thing – finding those eggs can be a bit of a challenge! Thus, the hide-and-go seek reference. One easy way to cheat at this game is simply to put a little mark in the crust so that you know where to slice the pie. The goal is to cut the pie so that you slice right through the middle of the eggs."
