Italian Zucchini Pie

by Trisha Mastromarino
(Tucson, Arizona )


As a child my Mother would grow zucchini's in her garden, two feet long and one foot wide. My Mom would make anything and everything out of Zucchini.


When we got older and moved out we would always request she make her zucchini pie for our birthday dinner.

My children are grown and have families of their own and they too request zucchini pie for their birthday dinner, only I have five children and four grandchildren so I make six zucchini pies!
I love that as a family we continue to pass on so many family traditions.
