Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and butter.

Press onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. springform pan and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

In a large skillet, saute the zucchini, mushrooms, onion and red pepper in oil until tender. Spoon over cheese.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.

Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Stir in bacon and pour over vegetable mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Place springform pan on a baking sheet and bake at 375°F for 30-35 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
