After visiting our parents in the country one time, we came home laden with boxes of fresh vegetables. I shared them with a neighbor, who in turn shared this recipe with me. It has become one of our favorites—both to look at and to taste.

  1. In a skillet, saute zucchini and onion in butter until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Stir in eggs, cheese, parsley, salt, pepper, garlic powder and basil. Separate the crescent rolls and press into a greased 10-in. pie plate to form a crust. Brush crust with mustard. Spoon zucchini mixture into crust. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Cover loosely with foil to prevent excess browning. Bake another 10 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 8 servings.

"Always looking for ways to use zucchini. I used dried parsley flakes and an Italian blend of cheeses that I had on hand. Everyone really liked it. I will be making this again but it took almost double the time to cook. Thanks for sharing this recipe."

"This is very tasty. They now sell crescent rolls in a "sheet" form now. Much easier to use for this type of dish, rather than working with individual pieces of dough. I made 2 of these for work and they were gone in minutes."

"Very tasty but I have to point out that the time is WAY off. A total of 20 minutes? Mine wasn't near done. It took 45 minutes. Was this a typo? I'm surprised no one else mentioned it."
