Oh My, My Zucchini Pie
Zucchini pie isn't the kind of thing you eat once and then forget. With golden brown crust, bits of salty cheese, aromatic onions, and the star player --- farm fresh zucchini for fiber and flavor. One piece in and you'll be asking yourself where zucchini pie has been all your life, and when is the next time you get to have it?
This recipe has since been revised, but it originated in the kitchen of the lovely Carolyn Noto, a pro-level home cook with deep Italian roots and a serious love of food and family. Carolyn taught me much of what I know about being in the kitchen. And boy am I glad she did.
Zucchini pie is a rich and versatile dish. Serve at breakfast, lunch, or dinner time with a side salad in order to keep things light.
