When I was a kid, we spent almost every day of the summer on the beach. On the way home, my mom would always stop at the farm stand and pick up fresh vegetables for dinner. One of my absolute favorite things that she would make is zucchini pie.

This is a very simple side dish, but more often than not, it would be all that I would eat for dinner. In fact, when I would come home from college, this is what I would ask my mom to make.

Sometimes she would layer other vegetables in there too. Like eggplant, red peppers, tomatoes. All of it works.
