This made an excellent addition to my Christmas appetizer buffet! I used lean ground pork instead of turkey with great results. Also substituted chopped water chestnuts for the zucchini for extra crunch. I served this with an Oriental dipping sauce. Thanks, GP!

I have gone on a diet, but this time I have decided to approach it differently. Instead of feeling deprived I am glamourizing my meals. I had this for lunch, got some strange looks from fellow worker. I brought the filling and heated it up in micro, then rolled it up in the lettuce leaves.

Very very easy to make. I highly reccommend cutting the oil in half for less fat. I also added water chesnuts in lieu of the zucchini, as well as minced garlic. As far as ease, I give it 5 stars. Flavor, 3 stars. Thanks for sharing!!
