Expert Tips

Zucchini has high water content so it's very important to sprinkle salt over the zucchini slices and let rest for at least 1 hour. During this time the salt draws out the water from the zucchini, preventing the pie from becoming watery.

If you do not have any rosemary on hand, other herbs that pair well with zucchini are basil, sage and oregano.
