❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

We love summer vegetables and this delicious garden vegetable pie is one of our favorites. You can throw this easy recipe together quickly and it would be perfect for a summer evening with friends and family. It can be a main dish or a side to any meal. Really versatile too, as you can add what seasonings and vegetables you like to this great dish.

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • 9 inch pie shell
  • Yellow squash
  • Zucchini
  • Red tomato
  • Red onion
  • Bacon
  • Cheese, (I used mozzerella and cheddar)
  • Mayonnaise
  • Dried basil
  • Dried oregano

SWAPS

If you don’t like any of the vegetables you can replace them with vegetables you do like. I think mushrooms would be a wonderful addition or bell peppers. The seasoning in this recipe gives this dish an Italian flavor, almost like a pizza. You could also add more tomato!

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This dish is pretty simple to make and great for a busy night.

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Preheat oven to 400. Cook bacon until crispy, set aside to drain. Add squash, zucchini, red onion to already warm skillet and saute in bacon grease for 3-4 minutes, until it’s starting to soften. If you like vegetables really done, then cook them to the desired consistency you like.

Step 2
In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup of cheese and mayo. Remove squash and zucchini and layer half of the mixture into the bottom of the pie shell. 

Step 3
Top with half of the sliced tomatoes and then spread cheese on top of mixture, then add half of the chopped bacon. 

Step 4
Next add remaining zucchini, squash, tomatoes, bacon and top with 1/4 cup of cheese and top with seasonings. Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.

PASTA SALADS

I love this pie served hot and fresh. You can always switch out the bacon for turkey bacon if you prefer. We make our own pie crust, but you an easily use a roll out pie crust from Pillsbury.

  • Red Potato Salad – This one is made with red potatoes and it’s easy to make! We added dill picked and everyone loved it.
  • Macaroni Coleslaw Salad – This is a combination of macaroni salad and coleslaw and it’s always a hit! Keeps well too.
  • Broccoli Raisin Salad – This is a classic for a reason and one that you can make in advance and enjoy with this pie.
  • Ranch Cauliflower Salad – This one goes with just about anything but the addition of ranch is our favorite.
