What an incredible recipe for Zucchini pie that I found on the Pillsbury site. Since then, I have added different seasonings and have even tried this with yellow squash as well. Delicious with either or better yet a combination of the two.

It is a very easy recipe to make. My family & I loved it!!! My husband & I had it for dinner one night and I shared the rest with my parents and sister's family. I had one piece the next day for breakfast and it was gone. I look forward to making this again very soon. Hope you enjoy. Kim

How to Make Italian Zucchini or Yellow Squash Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, garlic and onions; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in parsley flakes, salt, pepper, garlic powder, basil and oregano.
  2. Separate dough into 8 triangles. Place in ungreased 10-inch glass pie plate, 12x8-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish or 11-inch quiche pan; press over bottom and up sides to form crust. Firmly press perforations to seal. Spread crust with mustard.

    I always seem to have one extra crescent so I cut it and put it on top for decoration.
  3. In large bowl, mix eggs and cheese. Add cooked vegetable mixture; stir gently to mix.
    Pour egg mixture evenly into crust-lined pie plate.
  4. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. If necessary, cover edge of crust with strips of foil during last 10 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
