Ingredients

  • 6 cups zucchini washed and thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 deep dish pie crust frozen

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add zucchini, saut√© until tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, and drain if a lot of oil remains. Set aside.

  • Pour into frozen pie crust.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until crust is golden brown, and a toothpick comes out clean. It may be necessary to cover loosely with foil the last 10 minutes of cooking to prevent over-browning.
