4) Bake the pastry shell for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or till it has set, and allow it to cool.
5) Reduce the heat of the oven to 375 degrees.
6) Spread the filling prepared in the pastry shell, sprinkle the remaining cheese all oven and bake in oven for about 30 minutes or till the pastry has browned and the mixture is set and firm.

7) Serve hot.
