“This was listed in our local paper as coming from the New Jersey Peach Promotion Council. I entered the recipe as printed in the paper, but when I made it I sliced the zucchini very thinly, halved the amount of cheese, and left out the salt. I also used about 1 tablespoon of dried thyme since I didn't have fresh. My husband and I devoured half of it at lunch and decided to save the rest to have at dinner over basmati rice. I'd like to try it with fresh basil as well.”
