The rustic zucchini pie is a savory vegetable tart with a melted mozzarella filling. It can be served as a delicious appetizer, a vegetarian main course, or a single dish for lunch or picnic breaks.

Rustic Zucchini Pie

While preparing this delicious rustic pie, my daughter and I had a pretty deep conversation about emotions and our philosophy of life.

She is quite the talker and always has been, even when she was little. There were times when full-grown adults had to tell her to stop talking because she didn’t realize how long she was talking.

Now that she is older, she talks about stuff with substantial value, but sometimes I can’t keep up.

She is very much into politics and philosophy and is unafraid to challenge our ideals.

So, while we were hitting the heavy stuff, I kind of started laughing because I realized she was talking about something that could seem very personal to a lot of people at eleven in the morning like it was a simple conversation. When she realized this, we laughed slightly together, but in the end, I was glad that she entrusted me with talking about topics like mental health and political ideologies.

It made preparing this rustic pie a bit more exciting, and I felt like our conversation even made it a bit tastier; as they say, “Love is the special ingredient.”

Rustic Zucchini Pie

During these harsh times, I hope you spend as much time as possible talking and spending time with your loved ones, whether with your family or friends and maybe have this “torta” alongside you for the ride.

Description

Rustic zucchini pie is a savory vegetable tart with a melted mozzarella filling. It can be served as a delicious appetizer, a vegetarian main course, or a single dish for lunch or picnic breaks.

Ingredients
  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry (thawed)
  • 5.3 ounces Swiss cheese (sliced)
  • 2-3 zucchini (medium size)
  • 7.05 ounces mozzarella cheese
  • 1.8 ounce cheddar cheese (grated)
  • salt and pepper
  • frying oil
Instructions
    • Cut the zucchini into a lozenge shape or lengthwise and fry them.
    • Pepper and salt them.
    • Roll out the puff pastry on a baking sheet lined with baking paper  (8 inches = 20 cm))  so there is enough pastry to fold onto the pie like a border.
    • Arrange a layer of fried zucchini on the bottom of the puff pastry; on top of this layer, lay some mozzarella slices, and on top of the mozzarella, lay down the four slices of Swiss cheese.
    • Cover with the remaining layer of zucchini and sprinkle with the shredded cheese blend.
    • Fold the edges and bake at 180°C (356°Ffor at least 40 minutes.
    • You can enjoy it hot or cold, for preference's sake.
