Quiche, Zucchini II (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 4 to 6

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter or margarine
About 5 tbsp. ice cold water

2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp. olive oil
3 zucchini, sliced and then cut in half
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
Salt, to taste

Make Filling:
Sauté garlic in olive oil for about two minutes. Add zucchini and sauté for a little more. Cover and let cook in slow heat until the zucchini is almost tender, stirring to prevent garlic from sticking to the pan. Take off the heat and let rest while you prepare the dough.

Make Filling and Assembly:
Put flour in a bowl, cut the butter or margarine in little pieces and add to the flour. Rub fat and flour with the tip of your fingers until you obtain something like fresh bread crumbs. Add water slowly, just to make a dough. Work this dough as little as possible. Line prepared greased pie pan.

Add the rest of the filling ingredients to the zucchini mix and mix well. Fill dough with this mixture.

Bake in medium heat for about 25 minutes or until the filling is firm.

You can serve it cold or hot.

Poster's Notes:
I generally make twice this recipe and use a large oven pan. I'm making this for the kiddush in the synagogue this Shabbat. I really don't remember the source, but for sure I've changed it a lot.
