  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Fit pie crust into a pie dish and prick the bottom of the crust with a fork. Bake in the preheated oven for 7 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until crust is golden, 8 to 10 more minutes.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini, carrots, and mushrooms until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes; drain. Place half the zucchini mixture in the crust. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  4. Combine ricotta cheese, half-and-half, eggs, salt, oregano, basil, garlic powder, and pepper in a large bowl. Pour ricotta mixture into crust, top with remaining zucchini mixture and sprinkle with paprika.
  5. Bake quiche in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

I accidentally only bought 1 lb of zucchini and if there was 1/2 lb more it would have been way too much (1 lb was almost too much). The pie pan was overflowing and it took 1-1/2 hours to cook....

Very tasty. However, it was a bit runny. Next time, I'll reduce the half-and-half to 1/2 C, not 3/4 C. (Actually I used milk, and the taste was excellent.) I think that'll solve the problem perf...

I have made this recipe several times, only it was under a different submission. I came back to make it yet again today, and the old recipe was gone, but this one had appeared. Either way, delic...

Very nice and moist. The vegetables are perfect. I didn't add mushrooms (just MR'd out lately). What a nice taste the ricotta was.

Looks good, but waiting for comments. Will be used at church for Easter morning brunch between services - reheated. Used butternut squash rice, mushrooms, yellow squash, onions, and 2% milk inst...

Taste is good, but mine did not turn out like the picture. I could only fit 1 cup of mozzarella into the pie and my filling was still dripping over the sides. I would recommend grating the zucch...

My whole family loves this! It's a great way to use up zucchini, too.
