Courgette Pie (Kolokythopita)

Hi everyone, I finally got to the market this morning and picked up the ingredient which was missing yesterday for my recipe. This also is a simple Greek pie mostly made during the summer season with its lovely taste of Courgette and herbs. There is no phyllo involved in this recipe, so all it is basically is the mixing of the ingredients, and placing into a baking pan. Before my little vegetable garden was destroyed by the snow storm we had a few years ago, I was growing my own vegetables, and herbs which I loved to do. I found growing my own vegetables and flowers is so rewarding. But I did promise myself that I would purchase a new small off ground garden in the coming months. I am hoping maybe around the end of September. 🙂 I hope you will enjoy! 🙂 A good friend of mine asked me to make this recipe a while back so Michelle as promised the Kolokythopita recipe you wanted me to make
