How to cook the Cheesy Zucchini Pie with Roasted Veggies

There’s always something inherently comforting about a baked dish with lots of cheeses. The aroma wafting from the oven transports you to cherished moments spent around the family dinner table. This is exactly the effect I got from this zucchini pie. Now let’s take the first preparation step.

The veggies

Wash and slice the vegetables so that you have approximately equal shapes and sizes. Heat up a skillet with some olive oil and saute the leak first for about 2 minutes, then add the sliced bell pepper and then the sliced zucchini. Saute everything for about 7 minutes on medium heat. Season with a bit of salt and pepper. You may add a pinch of paprika if you like. Do not cover the skillet with a lid, allow the juices to evaporate. Furthermore, when the veggies are done, set them aside and let them cool for about 10 minutes.

The cheeses

While the veggies are getting cooked on the stove, grab a big bowl, and let’s mix the cheeses. Put the ricotta and crush it with a fork, then rip into small pieces some creamy brie cheese and grate some gouda. Crack 3-4 whole eggs into the mixture and mix well.

Next, add the sauteed veggies to the cheese and mix again. Now the mixture is ready to be cooked.

The final cooking step is to carefully lay the pie crust on the bottom of a cake pan or a spring form pan and pierce the bottom o few times with a fork. Now add the cheesy-veggie combo, spread it evenly and it is ready to be sent to a preheated oven at 360F for 40 minutes.

The Cheesy Zucchini Pie with Roasted Veggies not only nourishes the body but also feeds the soul. This recipe evokes a sense of nostalgia and homelike warmth that’s hard to resist.
