I got this recipe from my aunt who made it often. I think its either a Magic Crust or Impossible Pie. It does make its own crust as it bakes.

Aunt Ina gave me a hand-written copy of this recipe back in the 1980's with no source.

Do be careful about how juicy the tomatoes are. The pie can be soggy if they are very juicy. Also be sure not to over-bake or the pie will be too dry.

I really like it and get lots of compliments when I take it to a pot luck dinner.

1 c
chopped fresh tomato, drain any juice off
2 c
chopped zucchini
1/2 c
chopped onion
1/2 c
grated parmesan cheese (you may substitute any cheese you prefer like shredded cheddar or swiss)
1 1/2 c
3/4 c
baking mix, like bisquick
3 large
eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
1/ tsp
basil, dried

Directions Step-By-Step

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 10-inch pie plate.

Sprinkle tomato, zucchini, onion and Parmesan cheese on bottom of pie plate.
Beat together remaining ingredients until smooth, 15 seconds in blender on high, or 1 minute with a whisk or hand beater.

Carefully pour into pie plate on top of vegetables. Bake until knife inserted in center comes out clean - about 30 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
Note: If you want to have more "cooked" and less crisp veggies you can saute them before placing in pie plate. However, be sure to fully drain any oil or juice before placing in pie plate.

This is a WONDERFUL summer dish !! I snipped fresh dill and fresh basil (from my garden) over the chopped veggies and it made this dish sing !! I served it with some cottage cheese and sliced tomatoes for a light summer meal. I will be making this again and again !! GREAT RECIPE !!!
