“I was looking for a recipe that could use up some of the zucchini from the garden that the hubby and the kids wouldn't turn up their noses to and I came across this gem! My 6-year-old's comment after he tasted this was: "Mommy, I love, Love, LOVE this!" I hope that you enjoy it nearly as much as he did.”
