zucchini feta and dill pie


this is a belinda jeffery recipe. this such simple recipe, fantatic served on a summer's night with a lovely salad. it is wonderful served at room temperature and i think is even better the next day after the flavour's develop. i must admit the cooking time is a little tricky, mine took exactly 45 minutes, but i have included notes by belinda jeffery below. this recipe also makes a terrific nibble to serve with drinks. just press more cherry tomatoes over the top so that you can cut the pie into little squares for serving so you end up with a tomato half on each square.
