Sounds delicious! Edit: would the meat pie be pizzagaina?
ding ding ding... I'm writing that down.
My wife makes it in Easter.
She also makes a pastiti (pastiera).
Ah yes, I was told once that this was called Easter pie. I've had it and other awesome foods in Italy. Pastiera is a kind of cheesecake, right? A tart of some sort, if memory serves. Italians have such great food.
eh... more like a custard with spaghetti in it.
One of those things that there are likely different variations depending upon region, tho it's quite possible she uses some ricot in there as well. I'll let you know in a couple of months... lol
