Our garden this summer has done amazing.  And our zucchini has been abundant.  We accidentally planted 2 extra plants of zucchini...yes, they were mislabeled as pumpkin plants.  Oh well.  

So I have an over-abundance of zucchini and I needed to find more ways to enjoy them.  There's only so much you can give away!  I think this zucchini galette recipe is a great way to use zucchini and you're going to enjoy it as much as we did.  There's a delicious layer of ricotta and mozzarella cheese on the bottom of the pastry dough that is delicious! 


Here's a photo of my hubby finding yet another zucchini hidden under the pumpkin leaves.  Yes, this is one of the two zucchini plants we accidentally planted with the pumpkins.

Brush with an egg wash and then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  You can see I completely forgot that step!  It's okay, you don't need it, but I do think it will make the galette even tastier!
