Spread four slices of zucchini in lenth. The slices should overlap slightly in length, creating a long strip of zucchini. Cover it with the yellow squash and then cover that with the carrots. Repeat, zucchini, squash, carrot and add the prosciutto. Repeat two more times for 6 layers. Cut if you need to. Then carefully foll the vegetables and ham and place on top of the custard inside the pre-baked puff pastry crust.

Beautiful but work

This is beautiful but work. The positioning of the crust was tough, partially because I do not have the molds mentioned in the recipe. The directions are a little vague for such a difficult presentation. It is also costly. To reduce costs next time I am just going to use ham and a cheaper but good swiss. The taste was wonderful. It was a hit and I do recommend you try making it before you need to make it for a party, you will need the practice. I also would like to try to make a smaller size one, to see if it is easier to handle the crust issues.

When I saw this in our new catalog, I was taken by it's beauty and looked it up on our website. It sounded so delicious, I had to make it. My family and I were not disappointed. While it is a little labor intense and took me a lonnnng time to put it together (I'm still a little slow in the kitchen,even after all these years), it was worth the effort. If you're looking for something beautiful and delicious for a special meal, this is it!
