Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons LAND O LAKES Butter
  • 4 Cups thinly sliced zucchini
  • 1 Cup chopped onions
  • 2 Tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/4 Teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 2 LAND O LAKES Eggs, well beaten
  • 2 Cups shredded Muenster or mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
  • 1 can (8 ounces) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 2 Teaspoons yellow mustard

Directions

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and onion; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in parsley flakes, salt, pepper garlic powder, basil and oregano.

In a large bowl, mix eggs and cheese. Add cooked vegetable mixture; stir gently to mix.

Separate dough into 8 triangles. Place in ungreased 10-inch glass pie plate, 12x8-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish or 11-inch quiche pan; press over bottom and up sides to form crust. Firmly press perforations to seal. Spread crust with mustard. Pour eg mixture evenly into crust-lined pie plate.

Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. If necessary, cover edges of crust with strips of foil during last 10 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
