I came by this recipe from the Parents Action for Children web site, and as the name suggests, it is indeed “amazing.” Rather like a brunch quiche, this is one delicious way to serve summer’s bounty of zucchini. To simplify prep time, use a commercially prepared crust. Then just add a tossed salad and fruit for dessert!

    The basic pie would lend to many adaptations and additions - think chopped tomatoes, bacon bits - and how about swapping out the mozzarella cheese with Swiss or Gruyère? The recipe photo shows one half recipe baked in a 6 ½ “ pie shell, which is why the zucchini slices look jumbo in comparison. They’re not, the pie is just a smaller one, perfect for 3-4 people.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation
