My husband and I thought this was really good. I did have a couple problems though.I bought a frozen 9" pie shell (and cooked it). I figured I'd get the deep dish just in case this recipe was too much. The pie shell turned out fine except the filling was definitely way too much, as I had feared! I probably could have gotten 2 pies out of the filling. I can't believe I'm saying this, but the quiche probably could have used a little less cheese.Instead of half and half, I just used whole milk. I don't feel like it detracted from the taste. I also used low fat ricotta.The other problem I had was that it took FOREVER for the middle of the pie to cook. Not sure if it's because I used milk instead of the half and half, but the outer edges of the pie were getting really brown but the middle was still soggy. I had to put aluminum foil on top. I know I cooked it for at least an hour. I know for sure it's not my oven because I already know my oven runs hot and I decrease the temperature to compensate for this. Next time I will definitely use the half and half, and I'll probably put the aluminum foil on top about halfway through cooking. Overall, a good recipe, but needs minor adjustments.

I added crumbled bacon (two strips) and sautéed onions with the zucchini. This was excellent! We will make it again. Maybe tomorrow since my family was sad there weren't leftovers.

Looks yummy but is there a way to modify it so you don't need a crust -- like using Bisquick in it?

I love this quiche. It's a big hit at my house. I make it all the time. I double it. I love the leftovers. Great for church lunches too.

WoW!!! I tripled this recipe, shredded 1 zucchini and added about 1/4 cup finely chopped asparagus and Wow! Delicious. I cooked in a large cast iron skillet (deep) for about 35-40 min. This is a great recipe-whole family enjoyed.
