Meatless Friday: Italian Zucchini Pie


meatless friday redesign

This recipe is perfect for using some of your garden’s bounty! With fresh zucchini, tomatoes, shallots, and parsley, this pie was simple and delicious. We paired it with fresh corn on the cob to round out the meal. I used shallots because I had them on hand, but onions would work just as well.
