I created this dish one day to use up some fresh yellow squash, zucchini and tomato. It's so easy to make because you don't have to fuss with a crust. Give it different twist by trying it with whatever veggies you have on hand. —Catherine Michel O'Fallon, Missouri

A great way to cook vegetables. I added some broccoli and omitted feta cheese. Simple to make and very tasty. My family loves it.

I have made this several times, changed the veggies, depending on what I have.(I fry my veggies instead of microwave) Each time it has been Excellent! Don't be scared to play with cheese, veggies or herbs. Just follow the egg/ milk ratio and no worries!
