I prepare this zucchini pie when I have friends for dinner and want to have dishes that can be prepared in advance. This zucchini pie pleases all. The puff pastry together with the grilled zucchini, ham and cheese make a tasty match that pleases all tastes.
It is good even if you just enroll the ingredients with the puff pastry, but it can look even better if you make this kind of twist with the pastry,giving a special look for the pie.
I use to serve it at room temperature, but it is also very good warmed before serving.
You can serve it during a buffet dinner, or also for your family dinner, adding just some green salad.
