Zucchini Quiche

 

We have had two brunches at our house the past two Sundays.  Courtney’s brother George and his fiancee Carrie were in Cleveland last Sunday and we had them over and yesterday was Mother’s Day and we have everyone over for brunch to celebrate Mother’s Day.  We made this zucchini quiche both times and think it is definately a keeper.  The ricotta makes it a bit different.

I cheated and used the pillsbury dairy aisle crusts.
I love zucchini
All done
