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.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups sliced zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley or 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard

Directions

  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 in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
