“I was given a whole heap of zucchini and made various slices out of them. This one turned out great and is a change from the usual zucchini, bacon and carrot version. Cheese can be easily added to suit your own tastes. Other veggies such as broccoli and capsicum work too. Inspired by an Aussie cooking mag.”
