Este plato, que en sus orígenes era un bizcocho relleno con crema, lleva este nombre en honor al papa Pío IX, o “Pio Nono”, a quien le encantaba. Los inmigrantes italianos trajeron consigo diferentes versiones a América latina, entre las cuales se encuentra esta deliciosa receta que incorpora dos de los alimentos básicos de Puerto Rico—los plátanos machos y los mariscos.

PREHEAT oven to 350º F. Grease 12 muffin cups.

PLACE plantain slice in each cup, bending slice to line edge of cup. Repeat with others. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green pepper, ají peppers, onion and garlic, stir occasionally, until onion is tender. Add bouillon, cilantro, lime juice, tomato and crabmeat. Mix well; remove from heat. Season to taste with pepper and salt, if desired.

DIVIDE crab meat mixture evenly in the center of each muffin cup lined with plantains. Combine eggs and evaporated milk in small glass measure. Pour milk mixture in each muffin cup (use fork to make room for milk in mold).

BAKE for about 25 minutes or until set. Serve warm alone or accompanied with Island Mojo and white rice.

NOTE: The ripe plantains can be prepared in the microwave: Cut the ends and make an incision in the peel. Wrap in paper towels. Cook one plantain on HIGH (100%) power for 3 minutes, or cook two for 5 minutes.
