READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Colbys Mom

A different twist on the traditional hamburger. I like any recipe that squeezes in more green vegetables.

Pretty good, original recipe, the zucchini is a healthy addition and the pita also is a nice change. The sauce is also innovative and delicious. Nice combination.
