I really enjoyed this dish, the family had mixed reviews, but said they would definitely eat it again. I loved that it was so simple to put together. But next time I may add a little more garlic and use a blend of cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
Super good!!! Loved it!!!! My children begged for more. (Okay, I had to have more too.) I'm glad to have found this recipe. It's so easy and definitely excellent for the zucchini and tomatoes that are in abundance, as you said. I immediately made more the following day and plan to make this again! Thanks so much!
