My DH hates zucchini and loves this..he loves cheese so all I had to do was cover it in cheese....
Similar to my veggie pie but this is nice as a luncheon although a little more work.

    Roll out pastry and fit into pan, prick and chill for 30 mins.Blind cook the crust for 20 mins and uncover for the last 5 to crisp up.Set aside,
    Saute the onuonsin oil in fry pan for 5 mins. Add the zucchini and fry another 5 mins.
    spoon the onion/zucchini mixture into shell, Scatter over top most of the cheese and all of the basil.. Beat together the eggs, milk and seasoning and pour over the filling. Top with remaining cheese.Turn oven down to 350 and bake for about 40 mins until firm to the touch in the centre.Cool 5 mins before cutting and serving
