Can I use this recipe and bake it in a pie for filling?

Recipe question for: Roasted Rhubarb and Strawberries

Interesting ideas! I think baking and adding at end is a good idea. But what about baking it all together raw- like you would an apple pie?

I'm thinking that if you're re-baking an already baked filling, it may dry out too much and reduce too far. If you really want to use this as a filling, perhaps it makes sense to blind bake the pie crust until it is almost cooked through, then add the roasted fruit to finish off the baking. I'm also thinking you could use the roasted fruit as a layer akin to jam and then top it with a cream cheese/ricotta mixture. I'm interested to see whether others have a different take.
