Look what Jack ate!
Well, not the whole thing, but he is a seriously picky eater and he ate two helpings.
He would not touch the mashed cauliflower and potatoes, but I was impressed.
Here is the recipe.

Zucchini Quiche

1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 pound zucchini, thinly sliced (I grated the zucchini)
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash pepper
Prick bottom of pastry with a fork. Bake at 425 degrees F for 7 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F.

In a small skillet, saute zucchini in butter until tender; drain. Place half the zucchini in the crust. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

In a bowl, combine ricotta cheese, cream, eggs, salt, oregano, basil, garlic powder and pepper. Pour into crust. Arrange remaining zucchini slices over top. Sprinkle with paprika.

Bake for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
