Martina's Zucchini Tart

I came across a FANTASTIC recipe while watching The Chew on ABC.  Martina McBride was on the show providing her family's favorite recipe, Zucchini Tart.  It looked delicious, so I wrote the recipe down to save for a rainy day.  Well, today was rainy and I decided to make it.  Ooooooh I am so glad I did!  Try it and you will love it too.  Though I did make a couple of tweaks.  My alterations are listed below, but the original recipe can be found by clicking the link above (where it says Zucchini Tart).
