Zucchini Pie

35

Marjoram, with its hint of balsam, complements mild yellow and green summer squash in this simple crustless zucchini pie. It is topped by tomato slices and low-fat feta cheese, a lean choice. If yellow zucchini are unavailable, use all green zucchini.<P>Return to Healthy Greek Menu.
