    This is not your typical courgette quiche. It can be served either hot or cold and you can even cut it into small pieces and serve as a party nibble.

    My entire family loved this dish. It was really tasty and the texture was great. I increased the eggs to a total of 9, and used 1/3 cup of half and half. I used 2 medium zucchini, a whole red bell pepper, 8 oz of mushrooms, 2 cloves of garlic and a whole yellow onion. I didn't do the measurments stated in the recipe. I chopped all of the veggies quite fine in the food processor, and I was very happy with the result. Make sure you cook the veggies very well, until all of the water is cooked off. I will definitely keep this recipe and make it again and again.  -  12 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Great recipe cold or hot although a bit more flavorful hot. Cutting the cream cheese in half also cuts the baking time a bit. Watch carefully. For more flavor I added 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, eliminated the salt and pepper and substituted 1 tsp. Mrs. Dash and 1-2 tsp. Spike. This recipe got raves from a very picky brunch guest!  -  23 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    another rave review! I made this for mothers day, a big crowd. As hostess, I LOVE these mix and dump recipes. This one has the added benefit of looking really pretty if you thinly slice a large tomato and embed it into the wet mixture and bake. Looks party and shower pretty but so easy. I used asparagus and canned artichoke hearts. 9 eggs as earlier posters suggested. Asparagus were steamed until crisp before baking.  -  14 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
