Preparation

Slice the courgettes into rounds. Gently fry a clove of garlic in oil and add the courgette slices. Fry on a medium high heat for a few minutes. Meanwhile, clean the mushrooms. Remove the courgettes from the pan and set aside; fry the mushrooms in the same pan. Meanwhile, take a bowl and beat the eggs with the cream, the parmesan and emmental cheeses, salt and pepper. Roll out the shortcrust pastry on the bottom of a 28cm flan tray, spread the vegetables over the bottom and pour over the creamy cheese mixture. Bake for 30 minutes at 180°C.

Tips
For an additionally 'homely' touch, don't buy ready-made shortcrust pastry but make it yourself instead: it is easier than it seems.
Trivia
'Poplar' mushrooms are known as 'pioppini' or 'chiodini' mushrooms in Italian.
