   should be drained, but reserve 1 T oil.
   
   Preheat oven to 350^. Make crust - blend flour and butter until mix
   resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and blend just until dough begins to
   clump. Press onto bottom of 13x9 baking dish (dough will be thin). Bake
   about 10 minutes, until light golden. Cool. FILLING: in processor, finely
   chop tomatoes with reserved oil, garlic and oregano. Blend in eggs. Add
   cream cheese and blend until smooth. Add sour cream and blend until
   combined. Transfer filling to bowl and mix in chopped green onion. Season
   to taste with salt & pepper. Pour filling into crust and bake until filling
   puffs & is light brown, about 20 minutes. Cool to room temp and cut into
   squares.
