Zucchini Hamburger Pie

This is a family favorite handed down from my dear aunt. It is such a hearty pie that it satisfies the appetite well. And my family has always enjoyed the idea of having pie for supper! —Eloise Swisher, Roseville, Illinois

    I made this last night for my husband and I, my garden is overflowing with zucchini. Green peppers do not agree with me so a substituted celery. I used 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup of 6 Italian blend cheese and sprinkled a little cheese on top of the 1st layer of zucchini. I wish I would have done an egg white wash and prebaked the crust though, the bottom crust got mushy from the zucchini. I did however put an egg white wash on the top, sprinkle with garlic powder and parmesan cheese before baking. It was soooo good!
