If you don’t like the sugary dessert versions, you can still enjoy pie (or its upside-down cousin, tarte tatin) on Pi Day. In fact, you’ll probably enjoy it more.

I wish I’d made a savory pie. Alas, didn’t plan ahead. Happy Pi Day!
And to you! I made the roasted root vegetable tarte tatin, which I recommend highly. I think it might be equally good with butternut squash. Hmmm… wonder who’d be willing to give that version a try….
That sounds delicious!
