Tortillas and vegetables are always a good combination, and this pie uses both! Here’s what you’ll need.
- Either one flour tortilla of ten-inches or three of six-inches
- Pair of Swiss cheese slices (deli size) cut into strips of a ¼ inch
- Pair of tablespoons of olive oil
- Pepper and salt to taste
- Finely diced medium onion
- Finely chopped 1/3 cup of parsley
- Pair of minced garlic cloves
- A 1/3 cup of diced ham
- A thinly sliced, medium zucchini or yellow squash
- A ¼ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
- Half of a diced, medium bell pepper
- Five large eggs
- A ¼ cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Three cups of coarsely chopped fresh spinach
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and then focus on forming the crust. Use an ungreased pie pan of nine inches to place the tortilla in or if you’re using the smaller tortillas, place one in the center of the pie pan. Slice the other two tortillas in half and drape their halves along the pan sides. Put them aside for now.
Use a medium saute pan to heat the oil. Add the garlic and onion and then saute over medium heat for about three minutes. Follow by adding the bell pepper and zucchini and then cook everything, stirring periodically until the mixture has become tender and golden. The entire process should take about five minutes. Once you’ve done that, stir the spinach in and cook until it becomes wilted. Take the mixture out of the heat and put it aside for now.
Use a large bowl to break the eggs and whisk them well. Add the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese to the bowl as well as the pepper, salt, parsley, and ham, mixing all of the ingredients well. Add the veggie mix to the bowl and stir everything to combine. Pour the filling into the pie pan center and try to avoid any of the mix seeping below the crust. Spread the mix evenly using a spatula. Crisscross the Swiss cheese strips on top of the filling to form a lattice.
Bake for thirty minutes or so or until the pie has turned a light gold. Remove and allow the pie to cool for about ten minutes prior to cutting and serving.
