Reduce oven temperature to 400°F.

Top with tomatoes and zucchini, arranging a circle of tomato slices around outside edge, a circle of zucchini slices next to the tomatoes and a circle of tomato slices in the center.
  • 4 In small bowl, beat whipping cream and egg with wire whisk. Pour over vegetables. Top with Gruyère cheese and remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese.
  • 5 Bake at 400°F 15 minutes. Top with green onions; bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until filling is set and crust is golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before removing side of pan.
