How to prepare the zucchini and speck savory pie recipe

  1. First of all prepare the zucchini: wash them well, remove the ends and after having cut them in four lengthwise, cut them into small pieces.
  2. Transfer them to a pan with the oil and the garlic clove and cook them for 10-15 minutes, adding salt and pepper at the end and setting them aside.
  3. Cut the speck into cubes or strips and toast it in a pan, when it’s crispy, add it to the vegetables, eliminating the garlic.
  4. In a bowl, beat the egg with a fork, add the cream, about 50-60 g of grated cheese, salt and pepper and mix everything well.
  5. Then add the vegetables and speck and give a final mix, adjusting the salt as needed.
  6. Roll out the puff pastry into one 24-26 cm pan in diameter leaving the excess edges protruding from the pan, then pour the filling.
  7. Fold the edges inward and bake 200°C for 20-25 minutes. Your zucchini and speck quiche is ready when the surface is golden brown.
