Italian Easter Meat Pie

Mix well. Make pie crust, sprinkle black pepper in the pie crust. Roll out to fit 2 9x13 inch cake pans. Divide the mixture into both cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees F till golden on top, maybe 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
My family makes this at Easter, but not on Good Friday. Can be served warm or cold. Enjoy!
