Everyone I've made this for loves it!! I starting taking a short cut and eliminated steps 2 - 6. All I do is add the ingredients on top of the zucchini and broil them a little longer then it says in step 7. The zucchini comes out a little more al dente but thats how I like my veggies. Thanks!

I've made this 4 times slready and my entire family loves it. I've even used the baby zucchini to make miniature boats and the kids loved them--a bit time consuming, though! Very nice for company, too!
