MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 5, 2014

"This is so good. I have one of those "can't live without meat" people in my family. So I used one pound Italian sausage in my pie. I also used 2-cups of five cheese blend . One thing about this recipe; you must drain the sauteed vegetables very well. This is essential if you don't want to end up with a soggy crust. I baked mine at 350 for one hour. The crust came out beautiful. It was delicious."

"Very good! I used cheddar and pecorino ramono for the cheeses and less salt. 2 extra eggs."

"This is an absolutely delicious pie, easy to make and a wonderful way to take advantage of abundant zucchini from our garden. Even those who don't usually like zucchini like this. I've served it as a light entree or as a side. I'm expected to bring it to our summer family reunions as weveryone looks forward to it! I like to mix up the cheeses and don't think I've ever used the same combination twice and it was delicious any way."

"Delicious! I used only 3 TBlsp butter and used Cheddar Cheese. Also added some cooked diced ham (I think bacon would be good too!). Used 5 eggs as this was our dinner so I wanted it to be a bit more substantial. Was very yummy! Even my toddler ate it!"
